    The Hitch Hikers Painted Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1947). When Heckle and Jeckle decide to hitch a ride, they find themselves in bandit Clancy's getaway car! Here are two original hand-painted 12 field backgrounds from the beginning of this Connie Rasinski-directed film, released on 12/12/47. The first, noted in the top border area as Sc 7, is the curving road the car is seen speeding down; it can be found at the 1:13 mark. The second, noted as 8B, is the front seat of the car, where one of the magpies is about the pull the break, sending the bulldog banding and driver Dimwit flying through the windshield; it's seen at the 1:30 mark. Typically great Terrytoons backgrounds, attributed to Anderson Craig and Bill Hilliker; these would look good in any number of setups. Both are in gouache on skimmed illustration board. Minor handling and edge wear; Very Good condition.
