DescriptionThe Hard Boiled Egg Painted Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1948). A screwy yellow bird (Dingbat) delights in tormenting an egg-loving fox, in this wild Connie Rasinski-directed short, which was released on 10/1/48. Here are two original hand-painted 12 field backgrounds from this cartoon. The first is noted as 7, and can be found in YouTube viewings at the 1:14 mark, as Dingbat laughs at the fox. The second is noted as 53, and can be seen at the 6:19 mark, when the fox clears out of his cave after Dingbat left him a heart-shaped box filled with eggs -- exploding eggs! The art is in gouache/watercolor with airbrushed highlights on skimmed board, each with Terrytoons stamps on front and back. Very Good condition with minor handling wear.
