    Super Mouse Rides Again Painted Background Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1942). "Once a peaceful autumn afternoon, when all the harvesting was done, a group of merry little mice were playing in the cornfield." So begins this "Super Mouse" cartoon, directed by Manny Davis and released on 8/6/43. It was the fifth Super Mouse cartoon, released before the character was renamed "Mighty Mouse," to avoid a conflict with DC's Superman and another comic book character, Supermouse, from Coo Coo Comics (1942). This is a set of two magnificent 12 field hand-painted Super Mouse Master production backgrounds. The first one of the pumpkin home is from the opening, after the title credits. Both it and the one with a smaller pumpkin are painted in gouache on top-peghole board. Both have T3512 in the upper border, with a studio stamp on each reverse. Magnificent use of color! Anything from the early Super Mouse cartoons before the name change to Mighty Mouse is considered rare. Minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition.
