    Underdog Board Game Illustration Cel and Background (Leonardo Television-Gamma Productions/Whitman, 1973). "There's no need to fear... Underdog wills soon be here!" This fun Super Hero show debuted on NBC 10/3/64. This is the rare original published artwork for the cover of an Underdog board game box, featuring images of Underdog, Sweet Polly Purebred, and Simon Bar Sinister. This is a hand-painted cel featuring no less than three images of Underdog, with an image of Polly and Simon in a building behind him. The cel measures 20" x 13", and is placed on its original hand-painted Master background, painted with gouache on illustration board measuring 21" x 14". This is the final master artwork used for this game box cover. It's a true one-of-a-kind, and one of the single most unique pieces of Underdog production art we have come across. Please note this is NOT for the earlier Milton Bradley game, but for the 1973 Whitman board game. Production notes on bottom border. Minor handling wear. In Very Good condition.
