    Description

    The Super Salesman Painted Background Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1947). Heckle and Jeckle, in their ninth cartoon short, are peddlers selling hair tonic to an unsuspecting bulldog in the park. Here are two hand-painted backgrounds from this Eddie Donnelly-directed cartoon. The first of the two shows a discarded sidecar from a police motorcycle (Heckle and Jeckle are being pursued by both the bulldog AND a policeman for their peddling). The second depicts a grassy field, the brick wall border, and foliage. The short was released on 10-24-47. Vintage Heckle and Jeckle artwork such as this is very hard to find! These two gouache production backgrounds that measure 13" x 9.5" and are stamped Terrytoons near the top left. There is an area of light staining from glue residue near the center of the painting with the sidecar. In Fine condition. Both of these would be excellent for cel setups!
