    Post War Inventions Painted Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1945). In one of their wildest-ever shorts, Gandy Goose and Sourpuss dream of "the World of Tomorrow," in this Connie Rasinski-directed cartoon. Here's a pair of original hand-painted backgrounds from this bizarre animated film. The first is of the hall of "Post-War Inventions," high in the clouds. It can be seen at the 1:10 mark, with added light beams not seen in this painting. The second painting is of the pan that Sourpuss pops out of after the automated kitchen bakes him into a pie; it can be found at the 3:18 mark. Both pieces are painted/airbrushed in gouache on 12 field 3-peghole animation lightweight board, with a studio stamp on the reverse. Minor edge wear and a small amount of tape residue in the lower corners; Very Good condition.
