Description

    Camouflage Painted Background Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1943). Gandy Goose starred in this WWII-era cartoon, focusing on the war in the Pacific; Eddie Connelly was the director. Here are two 12 field hand-painted backgrounds, each labeled T 347; the first depicts a tree-lined beach, with a giant dugout or pit. The second, on the pine tree-lined shores of Japan (is that Mt. Fuji in the background?!) shows the enormous base for what is likely an anti-aircraft gun. These are in watercolor/gouache on heavy animation background sheets with the title handwritten on the reverse; one includes the "Terrytoons, Inc." stamp on the reverse. This lot is a fascinating WWII history! Fine condition.
