    Mighty Mouse and the Pirates/The Port of Missing Mice Painted Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1945). Here's a pair of original hand-painted/airbrushed production backgrounds from two 1945 Mighty Mouse shorts. The first is from Mighty Mouse and the Pirates, directed by Connie Rasinski and released on 1/12/45. It's numbered 33 in the upper margin, and shows the Pirate Captain's cabin, from the scene where he opens the bag holding a girl mouse as seen at the 3:38 mark. The second background is from the very next Mighty Mouse short, The Port of Missing Mice, which was directed by Eddie Donnelly, and released on 2/2/45. It shows the swinging door to the mice sailor's dive bar, seen at the 3:24 mark. Both are painted with gouache/watercolor on 12 field 3-peghole lightweight board, with studio stamps on the reverse. Two great Terrytoons backgrounds! Minor edge wear with slight tape stains in the bottom corners; Very Good condition.
