    Description

    The Hep Cat Painted Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1946). The old "Pied Piper" story gets a jazzy twist in this Mighty Mouse cartoon. The short was directed by Mannie Davis, and released on 12/6/46. Here are two original backgrounds from the short, hand-painted in the usual lush Terrytoons style. First piece is noted as 10a in the upper right corner; this can be seen at the :50 mark, when a cornered mouse presses the alarm that will bring Mighty Mouse to save the day. The second painting of an elaborate mouse hole can be found at the 3:23 mark, as mice come out dancing to the piper cat's swingin' tune. Both are 12 field 3-peghole gouache paintings on light board. Minor handling and edge wear; Very Good condition.
