Hanna-Barbera Proposed Teen Titans Series from 1974

Here’s a curious bit from The Deep Archives, an online archive of animation cels. A number of original graphite drawings were drawn by Legendary Artist Mike Royer, for a proposed Teen Titans animated series in 1974. The show would have been produced by Hanna-Barbera and it looks like it would feature Robin, Wonder Girl, Kid Flash, Speedy, Aqualad and Lilith.

Most of the designs were close to the comic book versions, except Aqualad’s caveman-like design. At first I thought the animation site might have mistaken Aqualad for Gnarrk, but you can see the signature “A-belt” in the sketch.
