    Description

    The Chipper Chipmunk Production Backgrounds, Group of 3 (Terrytoons, 1948).
    A group of three 12 field production backgrounds from the Gandy Goose and Sourpuss short directed by Mannie Davis (which contained no dialogue), in which their picnic is destroyed by a rogue chipmunk. The backgrounds are labeled "T-440," all are stamped "Property of Terrytoons." One shows the blanket, dishes, and fruit for a beautiful picnic spread, while the another shows the underground tunnel to the chipmunk's burrow! The last of the three depicts the grassy field in which the action takes place, with trees bordering the background. There is significant staining/ discoloration in this last of the three. Nice cartoon gags are conveyed through the two paintings. Top margins are marked "T-440"; all are stamped with the official Terrytoons studio stamp. They are numbered in the top right corner "35a", "36c", and "10-35". First two are in Fine condition; last of the three is in Good condition.
