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 in which 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 depicts a glowing, old-fashioned radio in amazing detail; in the short, hordes of mice children cluster around to hear tale of derring-do about the feats of their hero, Mighty Mouse! The second is an aerial shot of the high wire and the underside of the circus tent. Fifi is trying to outrun a trio of hungry lions! Both have "Terrytoons Inc" stamps at the top right corner and the production number T-372 is noted at the top left corner. These gorgeous circus-themed backgrounds could be the start of your next cel setup! Both are in Fine condition.
