    Description

    Thundarr the Barbarian Main Title Cel and Key Master Background (Ruby-Spears, 1980). "From out of space comes a runaway planet hurtling between Earth and moon, unleashing cosmic destruction!" These are the words to the opening title sequence of this fan favorite show. This is a one-of-a-kind color model/publicity cel of Thundarr, Princess Ariel, and Oola the Mork. It was created for use in press kits, style guides, and as a color model prior to the show's release. The overall artwork measures 18" x 13" and the cel is over a printed background. Everything but the pink background is hand-painted. Despite the show's popularity, it was cancelled after only 21 episodes making original pieces like this as rare as they come. The piece shows minor handling wear; otherwise condition is Very Good.
