    The Flintstones Fred and Barney Production Cel with Key Master Background (Hanna-Barbers, 1961). "You know I always take a short cut around your kitchen. Aw Fred, I always like a snack before dinner" says Barney Rubble as he is stopped by Fred Flintstone from walking in Fred's home. You can see this scene around the 4:52 mark in to the short. This is an outstanding trimmed hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of BOTH Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble. It is from the "Love Letters on the Rocks" episode. This was only the 21st episode in Season One. It premiered on 2/17/61. This is the episode where Fred finds a love letter to Wilma and thinks she's cheating on him, only to find out it was an old love letter of his that she saved. Great full-figure images of Fred and Barney of 4.5" and 6". The cel setup is on a trimmed hand-painted Master Flintstones production background. Cel and background are studio trimmed to 10" x 8.5". First season Flintstones Master setups are very rare. Paint of Barney is stuck to background and may need some minor restoration. Some tape along border, overall Good condition.
