    Post War Inventions Production Background Art Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1945). Gandy Goose and Sourpuss cartoons are almost always built around crazy dreams. In one of their wildest-ever shorts, they dream of "the World of Tomorrow," in this Connie Rasinski-directed cartoon. Here's a pair of original hand-painted backgrounds from this unusual short. The first, noted as Sc 18, is a rather plain background that could be used with just about any vintage cel for a setup; it can be seen at the 3:05 mark as Sourpuss is mistaken by robot cooks as pie material. The second is a great image of the Post-War Inventions building, as seen from above; it's noted as Sc 41, and can be found at the 5:31 mark as the pair blast through the roof with a rocketship. Paintings are in watercolor/gouache with airbrushed highlights. Very Good condition, with minor handling and edge wear.
