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.
