Down With Cats Painted Background Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1943). "In this mouse house, lives a mouse, not an ordinary mouse mind you... SUPER MOUSE!" This is the sixth Super Mouse theatrical cartoon (before the character was rebranded as Mighty Mouse), directed by Connie Rasinski and released on 10/7/43. This is a pair of magnificent 12 field hand-painted Master production backgrounds. One is from the opening scene where Super Mouse emerges from the mouse hole, while the second is from the finale where the mice congratulate Super Mouse at the barn, after defeating the cats. Gouache on 12 field background board; T348 is in top border, with Sce2 and Sce509 also written in the border. Each is stamped with Terrytoons Studio stamp on reverse. Only seven Super Mouse cartoons were made before the name and costume colors were changed to avoid infringement on other characters. Any artwork from the original seven Super Mouse cartoons is considered rare. Vibrant colors! Minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition.
