    A Wolf's Tale Painted Production Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1944). A "misunderstood" wolf tells his story to the cops in this Connie Rasinski-directed short, released on 10/27/44. Here are two typically gorgeous hand-painted Terrytoons backgrounds from that cartoon, both 12 field with 3-top pegholes. The first, of a police car, is seen at the :34 mark. It's noted as 2 in the upper right corner. The second piece is of Granny's wrecked living room; it can be seen at the 5:53 mark, when Granny punches out the wolf, and he tries calling for help. It's noted as 42 in the upper right. Both are marked with production number T-371 in the upper left. Art is in gouache on light board with studio stamps on the reverse sides. Fine condition, with minor handling wear and small amounts of tape residue in the lower corners.
