    Description

    One Ham's Family Production Background (MGM, 1943). "Santy Claus, oh Santy Claus... I'm a very good little boy... bring me some presents Santy Claus" says Junior after he slides down the banister pole and runs to the chimney looking up for Santa. RARE hand-painted 12 field production background of the family Christmas Tree in this Tex Avery-directed short. It was released on 8/14/43 and had great animation done by Preston Blair, Ed Love, and Ray Abrams. This background can be seen about 1:58 into the short. Backgrounds of this vintage from Tex Avery cartoons are extremely rare. Stunning colors. Gouache on background board of 12.5" x 10". Minor handling. Fine condition.
