    Swiss Cheese Family Robinson Painted Background (Terrytoons, 1947). Mighty Mouse cuts his Miami vacation short in order to come to the rescue of three shipwrecked mice on an island overrun with native cats, in this Mannie Davis-directed cartoon. These two hand-painted 12 field production backgrounds are of the island; the first is noted as 19 in the upper right and features a bunch of bananas (we have not been able to locate this in online viewings; it does include the proper Terrytoons production number of T-434, and may have been edited out, or appears so fast we just missed it). The second background is noted as 30, showing the King Cat's throne; it can be found at the 2:23 mark. Both are painted with gouache/watercolor on skimmed boards with Terrytoons stamps on both front and back. Condition is Good to Very Good with minor handling and surface wear along the bottom edge (particularly on #19).
