    The Hard Boiled Egg Painted Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1948). A screwy yellow bird delights in tormenting an egg-loving fox, in this wild Connie Rasinski-directed 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 21 in the upper right; it shows the fox's sugar bowl, which gets emptied by the bird. This can be seen at the 2:45 mark. The second is noted as 50; this is the outside of the fox's cave, showing a heart-shaped candy box left for him by the bird. It's seen at the 6:04 mark. Both backgrounds are in gouache on light board, with studio stamps on the reverse side. Fine condition, with very minor edge wear.
