    Description

    The Housing Problem Painted Background (Terrytoons, 1946). "Lucky is the man who has a roof over his head!" Servicemen returning home from World War II faced a shortage of available housing. Here are original hand-painted/airbrushed production backgrounds from this timely Mannie Davis-directed short, released on 10/25/46. The first is noted as 4 in the upper right corner; it's from when Papa Pig is trampled by a crowd chasing after a moving van, as seen at the :48 mark. The second shows the damage to the Pig Family's prefab home after a termite invasion -- you can see Papa's feet and lower torso among the bricks that were part of the chimney. This can be found at the 5:46 mark. Both are gouache on 12 field 3-peghole background paintings on lightweight board, in Very Good condition with minor edge wear and small tape stains in the bottom corners.
