    Description

    The Flintstones "The Swimming Pool" Storyboard/Concept Art (Hanna-Barbera, 1960). A piece of television/pop culture history, this hand-drawn storyboard/concept art features Fred and Wilma Flintstone, as well as Betty and Barney Rubble, in Fred's prehistoric car! The scene is from the very first Flintstones episode, "The Swimming Pool," airdate: October 14, 1960. These are the actual storyboards that Joseph Barbera pinned up in his pitch to sponsors. In the story by Warren Foster, Fred and Barney have a feud over a swimming pool that occupies both of their yards. The two storyboard panels are in graphite with red highlights on 12" x 4.5" illustration board, and are mounted on a 12.5" x 5" piece of black backing board. The panels are labeled "#57" and "#58". To have all four main characters together is a rare find. Yabba Dabba Doo! In Fine condition, with pinholes in each corner.
