A bright pink mountain lion boasting an upturned collar and cuffs, Snagglepuss was one of Hanna-Barbera Studios’ most loved and famous cartoon characters. Featuring in a range of shows from The Quick Draw McGraw Show (1959) and The Yogi Bear Show (1961), Snagglepuss also featured in a 1960 Kellogg’s commercial and 1990 kid's show Fender Bender 500 where he raced the "Half-Dog Half-Cat Halftrack" car with Huckleberry Hound.
This original production cel or "celluloid" would have been used in the animators' production process after a drawing was traced by hand onto a sheet of transparent plastic and painted in colour. Then projected onto a separately painted background in front of a camera, each cel - like this one - would be moved by hand according to the animating directors to create a minute yet crucial movement in the final cartoon.
Now bespoke mounted and framed in black pine and spruce wood, this colourful and dynamic artwork is a rare and exciting opportunity to add a piece of world animating history to your home. You can learn more about this collection on our blog or shop our full portfolio of Hanna-Barbera artworks here.
