    The Flintstones Pebbles Flintstone Production Cel (Hanna-Barbera, 1964). Dick Bickenbach (1907 -1994) worked on Tom and Jerry cartoons at MGM with Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera in the early days and was their very first hire when they formed Hanna-Barbera Studios. He would be the artist behind almost all of the character designs and model sheets and for the early shows including The Flintstones, The Huckleberry Hound Show, and The Jetsons. This is a rare original illustration of Pebbles Flintstone by Dick Bickenbach. There are a total of eight images rendered in pen and ink and marker on 8" x 11" paper. They measure in a range of 1" to 6" tall and the piece is dedicated "Best Wishes!" and signed by the artist. Until recently, Mr. Bickenbach was an unsung hero in the animation collector's world, so fan sketches from this man are very rare. The drawing is taped to a purple backing sheet. The piece shows minor handling wear; otherwise condition is Very Good.
