    Aladdin's Lamp Painted Production Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1943). Terrytoons cartoons are well-known for their beautiful background paintings, and here is a pair of exceptional ones. These are from yet another cartoon version of Aladdin's Lamp, this time set in China with army soldiers Gandy Goose and Sourpuss. The short listed no director; it was released on 10/22/43. The first 12 field hand-painted background is of a portal to a garden; it's from when Gandy and Sourpuss first find themselves in China, at the 3:01 mark. This piece is noted as Sc 23 in the upper right. The second background shows a lovely stream that Sourpuss falls into, with a bridge where three Chinese girls giggle at our wet hero. This is marked 30, and is simply beautiful, with a multi-colored sky and pagoda in the distance. Both are gouache paintings on 3-top peghole light board, with Terrytoons stamps on the reverse side. Minor edge wear; Fine condition.
