    Somewhere in Egypt Painted Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1943). War-era cartoon starring Gandy Goose and Sourpuss as soldiers stationed in Egypt. Here is a pair of original hand-painted 12 field backgrounds from this Mannie Davis-directed short, which was released on 9/17/43. The first has the number 18 in the top margin, with either penciled initials or an "X" over the number; it can be seen at the 2:35 mark. Gandy presses the button on the sarcophagus, and the boys drop down a level, as seen in the second background; this occurs at the 2:42 mark. Both are great pieces, painted in gouache on light 3-peghole board. The first piece is in Good condition with a small bit of missing paper in the lower left corner, while the other (with the gold sarcophagus) is in Fine condition with minor edge wear.
