HANNA - BARBERA CELS DRAWINGS (FLINTSTONES AND FRIENDS)
1910 - 2001
1911 - 2001
The legendary animation team of William Hanna and Joseph Barbera first met while working for Fred Quimby at MGM Studios. The Academy Award® nominated short 'Puss Gets the Boot,' the first Hanna-Barbara collaboration, featured the precursors to Tom and Jerry. Between 1943 and 1953 Hanna-Barbera's Tom and Jerry would earn them a record-breaking seven Oscars® for MGM's animated shorts.
Faced with the end of an era when MGM and many other studios eliminated (or soon would eliminate) the studio's animation department, Hanna and Barbera formed their own production company in 1957 to create animated cartoons for television. At the time, original animation for television was almost unheard of...Hanna and Barbera faced the challenge of creating original animation programming on a very limited budget...with so many animators out of work in Hollywood, they developed a team of great artists and writers to re-invent cartoons for television.
Hanna-Barbera's first television stars were Ruff and Reddy, followed by Huckelberry Hound in 1958. Huckleberry Hound was the first cartoon to receive an Emmy for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Children's Programming. Among Hanna-Barbera's other renowned characters are Yogi Bear, Quick Draw McGraw, Auggie Doggie and Doggie Daddy, The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Yogi and Boo Boo Bear, Scooby Doo, Quick Draw McGraw, and many more.
Hanna-Barbera's quick gags and comedic wit allowed the duo to create the world's first half-hour animated situation comedy - 'The Flintstones,' based on 'The Honeymooner's'. The 'Flintstones' would become one of the most watched and loved animated families, remaining in primetime for six years. Two years later, in 1962, America would meet George Jetson and his wife Jane in the futuristic based situation comedy 'The Jetsons'.
