    Swiss Cheese Family Robinson Painted Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1947). Mighty Mouse is vacationing in Miami when he finds a help note in a bottle washed ashore. This wild cartoon includes some cats as politically incorrect island natives about to burn the poor Robinson mouse family at a stake, until Mighty Mouse saves the day. Here are two goauche/watercolor hand-painted backgrounds from this short. The first 12 field background is of the burning sun, and can be first seen at the 1:00 mark, as the Robinsons float on a block of Swiss cheese. It is noted as 11 in the upper right corner. The second piece is a fantastic image of Miami Beach; this is when Mighty Mouse finds the note in the bottle, and can be seen at the 3:10 mark. It's noted as 38 in the upper right. Both are painted in gouache on skimmed illustration board. The first background has some minor water damage along the bottom edge (where waves appear in the cartoon); it's in Good condition. The beach scene is in Very Good condition with minor edge wear.
