    The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad Scary Woods Background Painting (Walt Disney, 1949). "Oh I'm telling you brother... it's a frightful sight. To see what goes on Halloween night. That's right... he's a fright on Halloween night!" sings Brom Bones (voiced by Bing Crosby). This is a very rare hand-painted production background of the hostile woods Ichabod Crane rides through to try to get across the bridge and away from the headless horseman. Stunning painting of the dark woods, in gouache on 16 field 5-peghole background board, marked Seq. 9 Scene 19.5. A protective clear cel is over the painting. Notes and OK's are on the bottom border. Minor handling and edge wear. Some tape on border. Very Good condition.
