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 Mannie 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 their new home. One shows the house in the distance, just waiting for a new picket fence and a mailbox, the second is of the threshold of the new house, the third shows a sawhorse and a saw, and the fourth shows a half-painted picket fence. Paintings are marked in graphite on top left "T-412" and on right corner "25", Sc. 40", Sc. "35", and "28". Paintings marked "Sc. 40" and "Sc. 35" both have remaining adhesive around the bottom and top borders; the main image area is unaffected. These watercolor/gouache paintings are lovely works of art in their own right. Fine condition.
