    The Last Roundup Painted Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1943). Hitler is seen as a red-faced pig in this WWII propaganda cartoon starring Gandy Goose and Sourpuss. Mannie Davis was the director, with backgrounds painted by Anderson Craig and W. M. Stevens; release date for the short was 3/15/43. Here are two original hand-painted 12 field backgrounds used in the film. The first is noted as 41B and shows the staircase Hitler and his pet monkey Benito slide down as Gandy waits below with a sharp bayonet. It can be seen at the 4:40 mark; note the swastika along the back wall. The second piece is noted as 44, and shows Hitler's cellar, filled with beer casks; find it at the 4:57 mark, as Sourpuss rolls one to flatten a hiding Hitler. This one has a few minor stains in the lower right. Both are painted with gouache on skimmed boards with Terrytoons stamps on the back. Good to Very Good overall condition.
