Making its debut in 1959, “The Quick Draw McGraw Show” featured a hero with little horse sense and His Mexican burro sidekick, Baba Looey. With the then-current Zorro craze, Hanna-Barbera adapted their hero to a mysterious good guys who would smast various banditos with an out-of-tune guitar and a mighty “El Kabong!”

This limited edition began with an original concept drawing by Ed Benedict, original designer of Quick Draw McGraw, from which a master inking was made by Helene Hartman. This line art, along with the Hanna-Barbera seal was silkscreened onto the cel. Each piece was then hand-painted on the reverse side using original Hanna-Barbera colors. The background by Ruben Chavez was reproduced using a fine art lithography process. The edition was hand-inked on each cel in an edition of only 200 pieces. In the final step of production, Studio founders William Hanna and Joe Barbera approved each cel with their signatures.
