    Playful Pan Tree Production Backgrounds Group of 2 (Walt Disney, 1930). Here are two rare black and white hand-painted production backgrounds for this early Silly Symphony black and white short. In it, the Greek God Pan comes down and plays music. His music makes the clouds dance. They bump into each other and lightening starts a fire. Pan leads the fire to the lake to put it out. This short was directed by Burt Gillett and was released on 12/27/30. One background shows the normal tree, and one shows the tree after the fire. In the short, we see this sequence around the 4:32 mark. An owl gets his feathers burnt off, and a baby bear has to run to the top of the burning tree and leap to safety. Gouache on 2-peghole background board measuring 11" x 9.5". Both have Scene 24 penciled in the bottom border. One has letter A, one has a letter B. Extremely rare early Disney black and white production artwork. Minor handling and edge wear. In Very Good condition.
