    The Archie-Sabrina Show Hand-Painted Backgrounds Group of 105 (Filmation, c. 1970s).
    In this lot we have an extensive assortment of 105 hand-painted production backgrounds believed to be from The Archie-Sabrina Show. The animated series premiered on NBC in September 1977 and showcased new segments of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as well as rebroadcasting segments from The Archie Show. The show was later retooled and divided into separate shows: The Bang-Shang Lollapalooza Show featuring Archie and the gang from Riverdale while Super Witch had Sabrina solving mysteries using her powers. The show's production company, Filmation, had a reputation for reusing animation elements, as a result these background paintings may have appeared in numerous episodes. Each piece was hand-painted using gouache on 12 field, 3-peghole background board. Some of the backgrounds have cel overlays. This is a great opportunity to combine a cel with a Key background making a nice setup for framing. These backgrounds are actual working pieces of production art and thus will show normal usage, minor handling and edge wear. Some minor paint loss on the overlay cels; otherwise, condition is Good.
