    Description

    The Super Salesman Painted Background Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1947). Heckle and Jeckle, in their ninth cartoon short, are peddlers selling hair tonic in a city park. This Heckle and Jeckle short features the famous magpies taking on a bulldog "customer." Here are two hand-painted backgrounds from this Eddie Donnelly-directed cartoon, both showing scenes within the park. The first one depicts the shaded path which runs through the center of the park and the edge of the garden wall in the distance. The second (also set within the park) shows things from a different viewpoint. This one depicts a large grassy field, with the brick wall and the city's skyline just visible in the background. Both are painted with watercolors and/or gouache on thin top-peghole boards. The short was released on 10-24-47. Vintage Heckle and Jeckle artwork such as this is very hard to find! These are hand-painted gouache production backgrounds that measure 13" x 9.5" and are stamped Terrytoons. In Fine condition.
