DescriptionThe Two Barbers Painted Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1944). Eddie Donnelly directed this Mighty Mouse short, all about Terrytown's double barber shop (a big one for men, and in the corner, a small one for mice). Here are two hand-painted 12 field 3-top peghole production backgrounds, both beautifully painted in gouache on skimmed illustration board. The first, noted as 10 in the upper right, shows the side of the men's shop, as a hungry cat creeps in; it's seen at about the 2:00 mark. The second, noted as 12, is a view of the outside of the shops, when the human barber throws the cat out the door; find it at the 2:17 mark. Minor tape residue in corners, and a bit of handling and edge wear; Very Good condition.
