DescriptionSuper Friends Darkseid Production Cel, Animation Drawing, and Master Background (Hanna-Barbera, 1980s). What a bundle! This lot includes the original, hand-painted production cel, the matching animation drawing, AND a Master background. Evil ruler of the planet Apocalypse, Darkseid made his first television appearance in the early 1980s, a time when many previously unseen characters were brought into the series. This fearsome New God is one of the most formidable opponents the Super Friends have yet faced - and what compliments matter is that Darkseid desires Wonder Woman to be his cosmic bride! In this image, he measures just over 3" tall. The matching "cleaned-up" animation drawing is rendered in graphite and colored pencil. The gorgeous Master background depicts a secret scientific control room, and is highly-detailed, with shadows, highlights, and reflections; central panel is a cutout, so that images may be alternated on the view screen. Background has been painted in gouache on smooth watercolor paper. It is possible that this is a Key Master setup; regardless, the background works perfectly with the cel. Cel is in Fine condition. Drawing and background both have slight handling; both are in Very Good condition.
