    Description

    Cat Trouble Background Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1947). A pair of hand-painted 12 field production backgrounds for the Heckle and Jeckle short directed by Connie Rasinski, in which they're the good guys trying to save a young bird on his maiden flight from a cat waiting for him to fall -- and become lunch! Gouache on 10" x 13" on heavyweight animation backing sheets labeled at top left with production number "T-423", with Terrytoons stamps near the top. Scene numbers are noted in red paint near top right corner. Both are idyllic pastoral field paintings; the rendering of the textured tree bark on the first of the two is absolutely masterful! Skillfully rendered landscape paintings set the stage perfectly for the upcoming battle of wits. Small bits of discoloration from adhesive is evident near the edges; the "onscreen" image in left unaffected. In Fine condition.
