    A Date For Dinner Production Background Art Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1947). It's the old cat vs. mice game in this Mighty Mouse short, directed by Eddie Donnelly, and released to theaters on 8/29/47. According to IMBd, all backgrounds for this cartoon were painted by Anderson Craig and Bill Hilliker. Here are two showing classic mouse holes; the first is noted as 26 in the upper right margin, and can be seen on YouTube as the cat is caught in his own mousetraps, at the 3:28 mark. The second background is noted as 30, and can be seen at the 3:44 mark, as a mouse is chased into the hole by the cat. But wait -- here comes Mighty Mouse to save the day! The art is painted in watercolor/gouache on skimmed 12 field boards. Condition is Very Good with minor handling and edge/corner wear.
