DescriptionThe Cat Came Back Background Art Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1944). The Cat Came Back has been used as the title to a number of cartoons over the years. Here are two original hand-painted 12 field backgrounds from the Terrytoons version featuring Farmer Al Falfa, a character Paul Terry had used since 1915. The first is noted as 41 - 43, and shows a mess in the kitchen; see it first at the 3:22 mark, as the cat enjoys a meal. The second painting is noted as 53, and shows Al's hastily boarded-up windows and blocked door; it can be found at the 5:44 mark. Both are painted in gouache/watercolor with airbrushed highlights on skimmed board. Both have a Terrytoons stamp on back. Very Good condition with minor handling and edge wear.
