(Hanna-Barbera, 1960s) An extremely rare animator's maquette of Yogi Bear. Maquettes such as these are used by animators to help them visualize the character from different angles. Maquettes were commonly employed at big studios like Disney. However, at studios like Hanna-Barbera, they were considered an added expense and not often produced. This maquette of Yogi is one of only three from this era that we have ever seen. Constructed of plaster and hand-painted at the studio, Yogi stands 11.5" tall and 5.5" wide. He is in very good condition with some small chipping in the paint.
