An original production cel signed by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera.

The most effect-ual Top Cat is showcased here on this iconic original production cel. First airing between 1961-1962, the success of Top Cat meant that this cheeky cartoon character and his gang of Manhattan cats were rerun and revisited many times. These included: four other TV shows, four films, and six cameo appearances such as The Powerpuff Girls (2000).

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.
