    Description

    The Sultan's Birthday Painted Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1944). The Sultan's Birthday was the fifteenth Mighty Mouse cartoon, directed by Bill Tytla and released on 10/13/44. Here are two incredibly colorful and detailed original hand-painted backgrounds from this short, both featuring the Sultan's lavish chambers. The first is seen at the 1:09 mark, as the Sultan awaits a special gift. The number in the upper right corner is 10, with 16 and 18 (it appears several times). The second piece is numbered 16, although it is seen more than once; the first time is around the 2:00 mark, as the girl dancer entertains the Sultan. Both are gouache/watercolor on 12 field 3-peghole lightweight board, with studio stamps on the reverse side. Minor edge wear; Very Good condition.
