    Gandy Goose and Sourpuss Production Cel and Background Set-Up (c. 1940s-50s). Gandy Goose (who talked like Ed Wynn) and his pal Sourpuss (voiced like Jimmy Durante) were Terrytoons' star team, appearing in over 40 shorts from 1939 to 1955. Gandy even made a cameo appearance in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? in 1988. Here's an exceptional multi-level set-up of Gandy and Sourpuss running from a dinosaur. The foreground tree and shrubbery (with the "Copyright Terrytoons Inc." type blurb) are on paper with a cut-out opening. This could be the only set-up of these two characters together, complete with Master Background art, still in existence! Gandy is 1.25", Sourpuss is 2". Some paint loss, and a small tear in the overlay foreground art; Good condition. Very rare!
