    Description

    At the Circus Painted Background Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1944). This pair of lovely hand-painted production backgrounds are from a Mighty Mouse cartoon where he saves Fifi the high-wire walker from the lions. It was directed by Eddie Donnelly and released on 11-17-44. The paintings are produced in gouache on 13" x 9.5" board. The first shows the interior of the lions' cage with a giant gaping hole (the hippo has just fallen from the tightrope, through the floor!) and the second shows three platforms for the performing lions (as the lion tamer cracks his whip). Both have "Terrytoons Inc." stamps on them at the top right corner. These gorgeous circus themed backgrounds could be the start of your next cel setup. Fine condition.
