    Ants In Your Pantry Painted Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1945). The "secret life of ants" is spotlighted in this Mannie Davis-directed short. Here are two original hand-painted painted production backgrounds from the cartoon. The first is marked as Sc. 32, and shows a garden where the ants are about to harvest peas. It can be seen at the 3:57 mark. The second background shows the anthill, surrounded by colorful flowers and plants; it can be found at the 4:50 mark, as worker ants deliver buckets of fresh milk to the hive. Both pieces are painted in gouache/watercolor on 12 field 3-peghole lightweight board, each with a Terrytoons stamp on the reverse. Minor edge wear, and tape residue in the lower corners on the first piece. Very Good overall condition.
