    The Addams Family Lurch and Thing Promotional Illustration by Jack Manning (Hanna-Barbera, 1973). This cartoon series was inspired by both the Charles Addams cartoons as well as the 1964-66 live-action television series. Both Ted Cassidy and Jackie Coogan reprised their voices for this cartoon adaptation. This is an outstanding piece of original artwork of Lurch and Thing playing basketball. It was done by comic book artist and animator Jack Manning (1920 - 1986), in ink over graphite on Bristol board. It was created to promote the show in a print publication. There is a hand-stamped "Hanna Barbera Productions Inc 1974" notification to the lower left. Nice large image size of 13"; board measures 14" x 15". Fun to see hulking Lurch, always with a dour expression, wearing sneakers and helping hand-in-a-box Thing deliver a slam dunk. Minor handling and edge wear; Very Good condition.
