    Description

    The Huckleberry Hound Show Illustration (Hanna-Barbera, c. 1958). The Huckleberry Hound Show was good clean fun for everyone! It was the second show from Hanna-Barbera and it starred the original "Blue Dog", along with Yogi Bear, Mr. Jinx, and Pixie and Dixie. All are present on this very rare original artwork from a proposed Golden Bubble Bath advertising pitch. These early shows provided H-B with a bonanza of licensing opportunities. Over the years, Purex, Knickerbocker, and Colgate Palmolive all made H-B character themed bubble bath products. The earliest we have found is "New Huck and Yogi Bubble". It "Cleans Children, while they bathe in bubbles!" It was from Milverans, and was distributed by Roclar Distributing. The packaging on this has all five of these same characters. This artwork is circa 1958-61. A beautiful piece of artwork in graphite with pastel, it has an image area of 16.5" x 13" in the matted, Plexiglas front frame. Yogi stands 9.5" tall, and Pixie and Dixie are approximately 3.5" each. We believe this to be one of the earliest known merchandising/licensing drawings for these new H-B characters on the Huck Show. Very slight rippling in the edges, otherwise in Fine condition.
