    Description

    Dear Old Switzerland Painted Production Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1944). Eddie Donnelly directed this wintertime ski-themed short, which was released on 12/22/44, the last Terrytoons cartoon of that year. Here are two snowy hand-painted backgrounds, each on 12 field 3-top peghole light animation board with a studio stamp on the reverse. The first is marked as #4; it's seen at the :49 mark, right before the snowman dance. The second piece is marked as 10 in the upper margin, seen at the 1:33 mark. This is the scene with a line of dancing goats who milk each other while singing (we can't make this stuff up, folks!), and both are noted in the upper left with production number T-374. In Very Good condition with minor handling and edge wear.
