    Description

    The Housing Problem Production Background Group of 4 (Terrytoons, 1946).
    With so many servicemen returning home after WWII, there was a real shortage of housing in America. This 1946 short, directed by Manny Davis, shows the problems facing a pig family finding a home; eventually, they buy a prefabricated house kit - only to be beset by a "biblical plague" of termites! Here are four hand-painted 12 field top-peghole production backgrounds showing the interior of the pig family's new home. The first painting is of the living room and shows a sweet domestic scene with armchair and kids' toys, the second is a corner of the same room, the third is a staircase, and the fourth depicts the upstairs landing. All four are numbered by scene in the upper right corner and all four have the production number "T-412" in the upper left. Remnants of old adhesive are along all four edges, though the main image areas are unaffected. Near the lower center of the first painting, there is some staining which also looks as though it came from old adhesive. The first of the four is in Good condition, the remaining four are in Fine condition.
