    Description

    Top Cat Cast Production Cel and Hand-Painted Production Background Setup (Hanna-Barbera, 1961). Top Cat burst on the TV scene on 9/27/61 like a Miles Davis solo. It was a Prime Time show on ABC. This is a rare hand-inked, hand-painted trimmed production cel of the entire cast! The image includes Spook, Fancy-Fancy, Officer Dibble carrying a passed out Top Cat, Choo-Choo, Brain, and Benny the Ball. Arnold Stang was the voice of Top Cat (aka "T.C.") The cel is from the 11th episode called "Choo-Choo's Romance." Principle animation was done by Carlo Vinci. The cel is trimmed to 8" x 10" and is on a Hanna-Barbera hand-painted trimmed background of same size, that looks very much like the backgrounds used in this series. The setup appears to be a 1960s H-B studio setup. There are great full-figure images of 2" - 5" on this extremely rare production cel of the entire cast. The background works great in this setup. Matted with an image area of 9.75" x 7.25" and in Fine condition.
