Description

    Keep 'Em Growing Production Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1943). This WWII-era cartoon addresses the labor shortage in the US, due to so many young men serving in the armed forces. In this short, a Pig stands on the tree trunk in front of the house and tells the animals they all have to do their part to work the farm. (The result turned out a little better than in George Orwell's contemporaneous book about animals running a farm...) Mannie Davis directed this short, which was released on 7/28/43. This pair of hand-painted 12 field production backgrounds are in watercolor or gouache on heavyweight 13" x 10" animation sheets, with the "Terrytoons, Inc." stamp on the reverse. One painting depicts a grassy plain, with fluffy clouds, and a Service Flag with 5 stars, hung from the front porch. The second, shows Uncle Sam's famous top hat and a baton on a small podium covered in cloth against an olive green backdrop. They both have "T-346" written at the upper left corner and the first says "3A1C" in the top right, the second says "Sc 4-6-9-16" near the top right. In Fine condition.
