DescriptionThe Mayflower Title Card Illustration (Terrytoons/Castle Films, c. 1950s). Puddy the Pup is featured in this original painted illustration, used (with added lettering) in a reissue print for the opening of this 1935 Paul Terry/Frank Moser-directed short. The cartoon was a parody of the landing of the Mayflower and interaction of the Pilgrims with native Indians (who try to sell peanuts and hot dogs to the new settlers); this Castle Films version can be seen on YouTube. Art is by a Paul Terry Studio staff artist, painted in gouache, matted with an opening size of 14" x 10", and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 20.5" x 18". Very Good condition.
