    The Hard Boiled Egg Painted Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1948). A screwball yellow bird delights in tormenting an egg-craving fox, in this wild Connie Rasinski-directed one-shot short, which was released on 10/1/48. Here are two original hand-painted 12 field backgrounds from this cartoon. The first is noted as 10, and shows the built-high base for a bird's nest; you can find it at the 1:33 mark online. The second is numbered 40, and shows the bottom half of an egg the bird had been hiding in earlier in the film; after eating all the fox's food, the bird hops back in at the 6:28 mark. Both are painted (probably by Anderson Craig or Bill Hilliker) in gouache on skimmed illustration board. Very minor handling wear; Fine condition.
