DescriptionRaiding the Raiders Production Background Art Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1945). In this Mighty Mouse short, our hero must save a newly-born bunny from the clutches of a hungry buzzard. The cartoon was directed by Connie Rasinski and released on 3/9/45. Here are two original hand-painted 12 field production backgrounds created for this short. The first is identified as Sc 15; although this interior scene of the rabbit home is similar to others in the short (and includes the proper production code, T-378), we could not find it in online viewings. The second background is noted as 21, and it can be seen at the 2:08 mark, as the new parents poke their heads out after Doc Owl leaves. Art is in gouache and/or watercolor with airbrushed highlights on skimmed boards with Terrytoons stamps on the reverse. Condition is Very Good with minor handling wear.
