Hot Wheels, an animated series based on the die-cast cars by Mattel, aired in 1969-1970. This television series led to legislation effectively banning cartoons based on toys until the 1980s. This 4-cel setup on a hand-painted background features Hot Wheels regulars Kip Chogi, Ardeth Pratt, and Tank Mallory.
