    Yogi's First Christmas Title Cel Setup with Key Master Background (Hanna-Barbera, 1980). When looking over the rich 60-year history of Hanna-Barbera Studios, you have to also look at the amount of animated specials they produced for television, in addition to their regular series. This is a rare 12 field hand-painted Main Title cel for the Ray Patterson-directed TV special that premiered on 11/21/80, Yogi's First Christmas. This cel was used heavily in the first VHS release as well. It features no less that six H-B superstars --Yogi, Boo-Boo, Daddy Doggie, Augie Doggie, Snagglepuss, and Ranger Smith. This is a three-cel setup on its Key Master hand-painted production background. Bottom border has written MT for Master Title. This image can also be seen in Ted Sennett's book, The Art of Hanna-Barbera on page 66. Rare item! Fine condition.
