    The Flintstones Fred and Barney Production Cel Setup with Key Master Painted Background (Hanna-Barbera, 1961). "Hee hee hee! Nighty night, Fred!" says a zebra nightshirt-wearing Barney Rubble to Fred Flintstone. The Rubbles are houseguests of the Flintstones due a flood in their home, and it doesn't take long for tensions to flare up. This is a rare 12 field hand-inked, hand-painted production cel setup of Fred and Barney on its Key Master hand-painted production background. Barney is on the Flintstone's sofa in their living room. You can see this around the 26:48 mark into "The House Guests" episode, which first ran on 12/22/61. It was the fourteenth episode in Season 2. Key Master setups from this early in the run of the original Flintstones series are very tough to find; this is one of the best background setups we have seen to date. Very Good condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
