    Description

    Cat Trouble Production Background Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1947). A pair of hand-painted 12 field production backgrounds for the Heckle and Jeckle short directed by Connie Rasinski, in which they're the good guys trying to save a young bird on his maiden flight from a cat waiting for him to fall. Gouache on 10" x 13" on heavyweight animation backing sheets labeled at top left with production number "T-423", with Terrytoons stamps near the top. The first of these two show a tree stump the cat is using a s a picnic table; he has just made a sandwich out of the baby bird and is just about to bite into it, as Heckle and Jeckle come to the rescue. The second shows a "wishing well" - the cat falls into it after the magpies pop the balloon he's been riding on! Skillfully rendered landscape paintings set the stage perfectly for the upcoming battle of wits. In Fine condition.
