DescriptionThe Smurfs Background Layout (Hanna-Barbera, 1981). "Next time you're feeling blue... just let a smile begin... happy things will come to you!" This is a simply outstanding background layout drawing of the interior of Allura's Fortress with the Orb. It is from the "Lure of the Orb" episode in Season 6. It premiered on 11/29/86. This is from the hand of Master background and layout designer Mr. Andrew (Drew) Gentile. Graphite with colored pencil on 29" x 10.5" pan animation paper. Interior of castle is amazing. One of the single most impressive pieces of Smurf art from this series we have come across. Signed by the artist. Minor handling and edge wear. Overall Very Good condition.
