    Description

    The Flintstones Fred, Wilma, Barney, and Betty Production Cel Setup (Hanna-Barbera, 1961). Fred thinks his old buddy, Gus Gravel, has invited him for a relaxing weekend at his hotel, but it's really a ploy to get him, Wilma, and the Rubbles to fill in for his staff who quit. This original production cel setup is from "The Long, Long, Long Weekend" episode 24, Season 1 of this groundbreaking animated TV series and can be seen around the 23:15 mark. The hand-inked hand-painted 4-cel setup features all four stars in full-figure from this hit prime time show. The characters together measure 7.5" x 6.5" inches on a trimmed cels stapled together over yellow paper. It would have originally been presented in a sealed white mat as a gift from the studio. Early Flintstones production pieces like this are highly sought after by collectors for both their nostalgic appeal and historic relevance with regard to the birth of the animated TV sitcom. The piece shows handling and the paint in Barney's shirt and Fred's hat has stuck to the backing paper. Condition is Good.
