    The Two Barbers Painted Backgrounds Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1944). Eddie Donnelly directed this Mighty Mouse short, all about Terrytown's double barber shop (a big one for men, and in the corner, a small one for mice). Here are two hand-painted 12 field 3-top peghole production backgrounds, both featuring the men's shop. The first one is noted as 4A in the upper right corner; it can be seen at the 1:00 mark as the barber opens his shop to mice. The second background is noted as 5.7, and shows another view of the barber shop; portions of the barber's chair were on cel, so only the base shows on the background. These are gouache paintings on light board with studio stamps on the reverse sides. Very Good condition with minor edge wear.
