    The Banana Splits Bingo Signed Color Model Educational Films Cel (Hanna-Barbera, 1978). "One banana, two banana, three banana, four... Four bananas make a bunch, and so do many more!" Hanna-Barbera's live-action series The Banana Splits premiered on 9/7/68. The characters were then were animated in a TV special in 1972, and later used extensively in the Hanna-Barbera Educational Films division in 1978. This is a rare hand-painted Color Model/production cel that was used for a H-B Education film. It is a great image of Bingo with his guitar. The cel is on a hand-painted H-B production background. The cel is hand-signed by Bill Hanna (1910 - 2001), Joe Barbera (1911 - 2006) and the voice of Bingo, Mr. Daws Butler (1916 - 1988). The Daws Butler signature is rare on its own, but to have him with Bill and Joe is very rare. Fine condition.
