    The Jetsons "Millionaire Astro" Layout Drawing (Hanna-Barbera, 1963).
    "Millionaire Astro" was the 16th episode in the first season of the beloved television series, The Jetsons. In it, the "fabulously wealthy" J.P. Gottrockets tries to reclaim Astro, whom he had named Tralfaz, from the Jetsons. When the billionaire takes the Jetsons to court, the computer Jury-Vac awards Astro to Gottrockets. When the billionaire realizes Astro is happiest with the Jetsons he gives him back. Here is a terrific layout drawing of George and Jane Jetson attributed to the hand of Richard Bickenbach (1907 - 1994) from this episode. The drawing was rendered in graphite with a red pencil box indicating where in the frame the characters should be. The drawings are on 12 field 3-peghole animation paper with the artist's notes hand-written on each piece. The artwork has minor handling and edge wear; otherwise, the drawing is in Very Good condition.
