UNDERDOG COLOR SKETCH

Here's an 8" x 10" color sketch that I did last week for UNDERDOG fan, Roxanne Flynn of Scranton, PA. Roxanne is the biggest UNDERDOG fan that I know of. To say that Roxanne loves UNDERDOG is an understatement! Glad you liked the sketch, Roxanne!
Email me at powsley@flash.net if you'd like for me to create a piece of art for you. Thanks! -- Patrick Owsley

FRANKENSTEIN JR. 12" BANK from FUNKO!

Yesterday, Brian Mariotti sent me this image of Hanna-Barbera's FRANKENSTEIN JR.. Brian is the President of the great toy company, Funko. Funko has produced a lot of great bobble heads and vinyl figures over the last few years of some of our favorite cartoon pals. This is the design for the new 12" FRANKENSTEIN JR. coin bank. Brian tells me that the bank features moveable arms and FRANKIE's head is removed to retreive coins. I'm not sure when the 12" FRANKENSTEIN JR. coin bank will be available. Brian says the bank is "still in the works." I really hope to create the FRANKENSTEIN JR. character art for the bank's packaging. It's great to see this character being merchandised! Looks like another sensational Hanna-Barbera product from Brian Mariotti and Funko! Click on the image for a larger view.

PRECIOUS PUPP - HANNA-BARBERA TV FRIEND!



I was just watching a compilation VHS tape of Hanna-Barbera's PRECIOUS PUPP cartoons. Along with THE HILLBILLY BEARS, PRECIOUS PUPP was one of the segments shown during THE ATOM ANT SHOW in 1965. Hanna-Barbera was still producing great cartoons at this time, such as SECRET SQUIRREL, WINSOME WITCH and SQUIDDLY DIDDLY. I'll do future postings featuring those characters soon. I especially love the character designs seen in these shows. The top image here is a color sketch of PRECIOUS PUPP that I did this morning. The middle image, featuring GRANNY SWEET and PRECIOUS PUPP, is scanned from a book of Hanna-Barbera model sheets. The bottom image is a scan of the first panel from the PRECIOUS PUPP story that appears in the 1965 Gold Key ATOM ANT comic book. Click on each image for a larger view!
