Description
'The Beatles Cartoon', pre-production cel, US 1964. A very rare original cel from the production of the King Features cartoon that ran on ABC television. The piece shows the fab four performing in band formation. Gouache on celluloid. Signed Joe Cal Cagno. It is possible due to the extra facial details and the lack of detail on the bands instruments that this is pre-production cel, and was never actually used in the series. It is more likely to have been produced for pre-production studio advertising, and was probably drawn by Peter Sander and not by Joe Cal Cagno. It was produced before a more simplified look for the characters was decided upon. Framed and glazed. Overall measurements approx. 15 x 13.5 inch (46 x 32 cm) No Reserve.
