    Super Friends Batman Production Cel Setup and Master Background (Hanna-Barbera, c. 1970s-80s). Awesome image of a very distressed-looking Superman from the chest-up, in this great hand-painted production cel. Superman measures just over 4" high - and a "glowing" effect surrounding him has been added to the back - rather than the front - of the cel in airbrush; these sorts of effects are normally very delicate and don't always hold up well during the years, usually applied on the outside, they tend to bear the brunt of normal handling/wear and tear and are often easily scratched. However, since the effect has here been applied to the back of the cel, the paint has survived intact. On the third cel in the setup, the iconic globe from atop the Daily Planet Building has tumbled down (could it have been swapped out with a Kryptonite fake??) and is having the intended effect on our hero. Combined cel setup image measures 6" tall and 7" across. These have been placed atop a Master production background from the show (a clear, evening sky). Both cel setup and background are standard 12 field-sized and are in Fine condition.
