    Description

    The Butcher of Seville Painted Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1944). The World War II meat shortage was played for laughs in the opera-themed short, directed by Eddie Donnelly and released on 1/7/44. Here are two original hand-painted backgrounds from this cartoon, both painted in gouache on 12 field 3-top peghole light board. The first is noted as Sc 16 in the upper right corner; it's of the cat's "no meat today" butcher shop, seen at the 2:39 mark. The second, noted as 50 in the top margin, is a stage background shown at the 6:00 mark, as the stolen cow is recovered. Minor edge wear; Very Good condition.
