    Down With Cats Painted Production Background Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1943). Pair of original hand-painted backgrounds from the sixth Super Mouse (Mighty Mouse) short, released on 10/7/43 (with no director listed). Both are painted in gouache on light board with studio stamps on the reverse sides. The first is a partial pan background, with art missing from the left edge. It's noted as 15 16 along the right side, and measures 14.5" x 9.5", with no pegholes. You can see a brief section of this at the 1:59 mark. There is old brown paper tape along the right edge, and some faint glue stains at the left; it's in Good condition. The second piece is a 12 field 3-top peghole painting of a cabin wall exterior, first seen at the 5:04 mark, as the cats are trying to break in using axes. It's noted as Sc. 41 -- 43. It's in Very Good condition with minor handling wear and tape residue in the bottom corners. Each would make a great setup paired with the right cels.
