DescriptionMexican Baseball Production Background Art Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1947). Gandy Goose and Sourpuss are baseball players -- in fact, the entire team -- who face the mighty Mexican League Bulls team, in this Mannie Davis-directed short from 3/14/47. Here are two original hand-painted production backgrounds from this short. The first is noted as 39A and shows home plate; you can find it in online viewings at the 3:57 mark, as Sourpuss comes up to bat. The second is noted 61, and shows the Mexican band area, including two drums and a stool; you can find it at the 5:55 mark. The art is in watercolor/gouache on skimmed illustration board with Terrytoons stamps on both front and back. Condition is Very Good with minor handling wear.
