    The Witch's Cat Painted Production Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1948). This Halloween-themed Mighty Mouse cartoon featured mice playing in a cornfield, chased by a broom-riding witch and her black cat. Here are two 12 field 3-top peghole hand-painted backgrounds from this Manny Davis-directed short, which was released on 9/15/48. Both are night scenes; the first is of a cliff edge, noted as 14A in the upper right corner. This is when the witch comes out of her cave, at the 2:18 mark. The second is of the cornfield, seen at the 4:41 mark, in a close-up of the cat; it's marked 40. Both are noted with production number T-443. As usual, these Terrytoons backgrounds are quite beautiful, painted in gouache on light board, with studio stamps on the reverse. Very minor edge wear; Fine condition.
