    Ants In Your Pantry Production Background Art Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1945). The "problem of ants" is the subject of this Mannie Davis-directed short, which was released on 2/16/45. Here are two original hand-painted painted 12 field production backgrounds from the cartoon. The first is marked as 24, and can be seen in online viewings at the 3:11 mark, as worker ants "clock in." The slightly darker time cards are hand-trimmed painted cels glued in position; you can see them as each ant clocks in and places is card in the rack. The second is noted as 28, and can be seen at the 3:36 mark as the ants work at clearing a garden of edibles. The art is in gouache and watercolor on skimmed boards with Terrytoons stamps on the backs. Condition is Very Good, with minor handling and edge wear.
