    Somewhere in the Pacific Japanese Ship Painted Background (Terrytoons, 1942/43). Not much is known about this "lost" Terrytoons World War II propaganda short. It had a one sheet with both Gandy Goose as an army soldier along with Mighty Mouse (which appears to have been a generic image, used on several posters), and was directed by Mannie Davis. Leonard Maltin's book Of Mice and Magic lists the release date as December 25, 1942 while others say January 8, 1943. This is an outstanding politically-incorrect hand-painted 12 field Master production background showcasing a Japanese ship being sunk in the South Pacific. Gouache on background board. Production code T337 is in the top right border. Minor handing and edge wear, overall color is striking. Ship is actually 7" x 6". Very Good condition.
