DescriptionGandy's Dream Girl Production Background Art Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1944). Gandy Goose and Sourpuss are smitten with cute girl cat Juliet, who appears only in dreams. Here are two original hand-painted/airbrushed 12 field production backgrounds from this Mannie Davis-directed short, which premiered on 12/8/44. The first is noted as Sc. 27, and shows the pair's shared bed; find it at the 4:03 mark in online viewings. The next is numbered in the upper margin, but the number is painted over; it's inside a church as Sourpuss walks Juliet down the aisle, and can be seen at the 4:26 mark. Note there is a rubber cement stain in the window; it's from a pasted-on "crash" that has since fallen off, showing when Gandy interrupts the ceremony by jumping through the window. Both are in watercolor/gouache on skimmed boards, with Terrytoons stamps on back. Good to Very Good condition.
