    Description

    Keep 'em Growing Painted Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1943). This World War II propaganda short was directed by Mannie Davis, and released on 76/28/43. These original hand-painted/airbrushed production backgrounds show scenes on the farm, as animals pitch in to help while humans are fighting overseas. The first is noted as 22, and shows wooden stakes for tomato plants to grow on, which can be seen at the 3:12 mark. The second, noted as Sc. 30, is a stylized "milking conveyor" showing the opening to shove in a case of empty milk bottles; it's at the 4:25 mark. Both background paintings are in gouache on 12 field 3-peghole lightweight board, with studio stamps on the reverse. Very Good condition with minor edge wear.
