DescriptionThe Housing Problem Production Background Art Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1946). Soldiers returning from WWII find a severe shortage of available housing (a real-life problem), in this Mannie Davis-directed Terrytoons short released on 10/25/46. Here are two original 12 field hand-painted backgrounds from this short, each painted in watercolor/gouache on skimmed boards. The first, noted in the upper right with the number 3, shows the Ajax Moving Company office at the corner of a city street; it can be seen in YouTube videos at the :41 mark. The second background comes from toward the end of the short, after termites have destroyed the Pig Family's new home; it's noted as 53-55, and can be first seen at the 5:55 mark. Both pieces have minor glue stains, and are in Good condition.
