    Lippy the Lion and Hardy Har Har Production Cel with Custom Painted Background (Hanna-Barbera, 1962). "Here comes Lippy and Hardy! The most lovable, laughable, looney by far... Lippy the Lion and Hardy Har Har!" This series about a Lion and his Hyena pal featured the voices of Daws Butler and Mel Blanc. These two characters were part of The Hanna-Barbera New Cartoon Series, which also starred Wally Gator and Touché Turtle. It premiered on 9/3/62. This is a rare hand-inked, hand-painted 12 field production cel from the opening musical title sequence. You can see this image about five seconds into the show's intro. They do battle with a giant gorilla in this sequence. Great image of the pair climbing up the spears, only to find the gorilla waiting at the top. As a bonus, this cel is hand-signed by Mr. Joe Barbera (1911 - 2006). Overall image size of both characters is 5". The cel is on a custom hand-painted background, made for presentation purposes. Cel and background are matted, with an opening of 10" x 12", and an overall mat size of 17" x 19". Early hand-inked H-B opening sequence animation art is always in high demand. Very Good condition.
