    The New Adventures of Superman Production Cel and Key Master Background (Filmation, c. 1960s).
    Here is a fantastic Key Master setup from the New Adventures of Superman. The series was the first time that Superman and Lois Lane had been seen in animated form since they were immortalized in the Superman short films of the 1940s. The network received complaints from the Action for Childrens Television due to Superman fighting and other action-related violence which the group found objectionable. As a result, the series was soon canceled, and future cartoons would not allow comic book violence. From the New Adventures of Superman we have a sensational hand-inked and hand-painted production cel. The cel is paired with a hand-painted background making this a superb Key Master. Key Masters are considered rare and highly collectible. This is actual working production art and thus will show normal usage, minor handling, and edge wear; overall condition is Very Good.
