On September 13, 1969, world-renowned animation pioneers William Hanna and Joseph Barbera introduced what would become the longest running cartoon in TV history: Scooby-Doo. Coupling the character designs of artist Iwao Takamoto with an action-adventure format featuring humans in supporting roles would ultimately herald a new era in children's programming, beginning with 19 separate Scooby-Doo shows spanning 22 years. This cel began with a drawing from Iwao Takamoto, original designer of the characters on Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! A master inking by Helene Hunter was silk-screened, along with the Hanna-Barbera seal, onto an acetate sheet (or "cel"). Each cel was then expertly hand-painted on the reverse side. The background drawings were also drawn by Iwao Takamoto, and special attention was paid in the printing in order to capture the delicate line quality. Designer, artist, and Hanna-Barbera employee of the longest standing Iwao Takamoto joined Studio co-founders William Hanna and Joseph Barbera in approving each cel with their signatures. In the final step of production, the edition number was hand-inked on each cel. Upon completion of the edition, the master inking was archived. An "H.C.," or Hors de Commerce, is one in a series of proofs that was produced in addition to the regular edition, and is not intended for resale.
