Peter Puck NBC Sports Production Cel/Title Card Hanna Barbera, 1975. Peter Puck is a talking hockey puck with ice skates and gloves. He was created by Hanna-Barbera in 1973 when NBC asked for an animated character to explain the rudiments of ice hockey to fans of the game. In each episode, Peter lectured on a different aspect of ice hockey: how the equipment is made, referee hand signals and penalties, the history of the Stanley Cup, etc. Only nine episodes were produced, but Peter Puck was a cult favorite in the 1970s, and still has many fans today.This RARE piece was hand-painted at Hanna Barbera's Ink and Paint Department on 12 field acetate and placed over a color card. The joint efforts of William Hanna and Joseph Barbera have had a powerful and lasting impact on television animation.
