    Description

    Love's Labor Won Mighty Mouse Painted Background (Terrytoons, 1948). "In our last episode, we left our hero in a desperate situation... facing certain death at the mouth of a giant cannon!" This is the Master hand-painted held background that opens this cartoon as the dialogue is spoken, right after the opening title credits. Mannie Davis directed the short; it starred Mighty Mouse, Oil Can Harry and Pearl Pureheart, and was released on 9/15/48. Gouache on background board. Border is marked T446 #1. There's a Terrytoons stamp in the upper boarder as well. An extremely rare piece of vintage Mighty Mouse production art! Minor handling and edge wear. Fine condition.
