    Terrytoons Painted Backgrounds Original Art Group of 2 (Terrytoons, c. 1940s). Although the Terrytoons studio cartoon output was considered lesser quality to most fans, their sumptuous background art often rivaled that of Disney. Here are two impressive pieces, both hand-painted 12 field top peghole production backgrounds. The first is of a castle interior staircase; it's actually inside the Queen Ant's royal chamber, from Ants in your Pantry (1945). You can find it at the 2:58 mark. The second painted background is of a castle door and outer wall. We can't identify it, as it has no Terrytoons production number (as most all do), but stylistically, it fits with the other gouache background painting. These would work great with other cels, or as simply nicely-painted vintage art to hang on your wall. Either way, you can't lose! Very Good condition, with minor handling and edge wear.
