    Description

    The Cat Came Back Painted Backgrounds 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 backgrounds from the Terrytoons version featuring Farmer Al Falfa, a character Paul Terry had used since 1915. Both background paintings are interiors of Al's home, painted in gouache on 12 field 3-peghole lightweight board, with studio stamps on the reverse. The first is noted as 49, and can be seen online at the 5:28 mark; this is the infamous scene where Al's bare behind is very briefly shown (quickly covered by his dog). The other piece is numbered 54, and can be found at the 5:48 mark. Both have minor edge wear; Very Good condition.
