Bob Hope Animation Drawing (Hanna-Barbera, c. 1970s).
This original art graphite animation drawing (produced on sideways 16 field 3-peghole animation paper) was created for an article in a TAFT Merchandising Group magazine/newsletter. Bob Hope stands 13.5″ tall, with golf club in hand. The graphic that reads “Thanks for the Memory” is the only inked in part. This is also a stripped-in paper piece that is taped in place from the backside at the time of creation. This piece is a rare look into the corporate side of Hanna-Barbera after they were purchased by TAFT.
