    Description

    Keep 'em Growing Painted Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1943). "Let's all pull together for our boys across the sea!" The patriotic war-time short had the farm animals keeping up production while the farmers were away. Mannie Davis directed; the cartoon was released on 7/28/43. This pair of original hand-painted/airbrushed 12 field production backgrounds are both outdoor scenes. The first is noted as Sc 11, and can be seen in YouTube viewings at the 1:49 mark as a centipede jumps on top of a crate filled with fresh eggs to nail the top shut (by splitting its body into many segments). The second piece is noted as 18, showing newly plowed land; it can be seen at the 2:43 mark as rabbits help cover the seeds. These are painted in gouache on skimmed boards with Terrytoons stamps on back. Very Good condition with minor handling wear.
