    Description

    Scrap For Victory Painted Background Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1943). When Gandy Goose and Sourpuss run short on ammo at the front, the folks back home collect scrap metal and rubber for the war effort in this Terrytoons propaganda short. Here are two original hand-painted 12 field backgrounds from the cartoon. These both depict the wooden frame from a DIY old-style wringer washing machine. The character (a small guard dog) is squeezing out the remaining toothpaste from his metal tubes, so they can be recycled for the War Effort!) Both are painted in watercolor/gouache on thin top-peghole board. Very minor stains near outside edges from old adhesive; "On-screen image area" left unaffected. Fine condition. Beautiful background paintings and a great piece of both WWII and animation history!
