    Description

    A Mouse in the House Tom, Jerry, and Butch Production Cel and Master Painted Background Setup (MGM, 1947). Classic hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Tom, Jerry and the alley cat named Butch, from the Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera-directed short that was released on 8/30/47. This is an outstanding MGM Studio gift setup. Inked on the mat is, "Best wishes to our pal Elmer Jahncke from Butch, Tom and Jerry." The cel of Tom and Butch is from about 2:43 in the short, while Jerry is added from another scene. The cel is on a Master Tom and Jerry production background from the same time-period. Great images of 2" - 6". Matted with an opening size of 13" x 13" and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 20.25" x 20.25". This is one of the best 1940s Tom and Jerry setups we have seen to date. Fine condition.
