DescriptionFishing by the Sea Production Background Art Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1947). Dimwit Dog's fishing day is ruined by Heckle and Jeckle in this crazy cartoon, which was directed by Connie Rasinski and released on 9/19/47. Here are two original 12 field hand-painted backgrounds featuring an ocean view. The first is noted as Sc 10 in the upper peghole margin, and can be seen in online viewings at the 1:32 mark as Dimwit struggles to pull in his catch. The second is noted as 16, and shows the cooking gear the magpies use to fry up Dimwit's fish; it's seen at the 2:25 mark. Art is in watercolor/gouache on skimmed boards; one includes a Terrytoons stamp on the reverse. Overall condition is Very Good, with very minor handling wear, and tape residue on the bottom corners.
