Animation legend Joseph Barbera's first ever cartoon which paved the way for Tom and Jerry, the Flintstones and Yogi Bear has emerged for sale for £15,000.
Barbera drew the Kiko the Kangaroo cartoon in 1935 while working as a junior animator at the Terrytoons studio, home of Mighty Mouse and Deputy Dawg.
Along with William Hanna he went on to create some of the most iconic cartoons of all time, also including George and the Jetsons, Huckleberry Hound, Scooby Doo and Wacky Races.
The sketches, belonging to Barbera's nephew Larry, are being sold by Heritage Auctions in Los Angeles.
