    The Witch's Cat Production Background Art Group of 4 (Terrytoons, 1948). This Halloween-themed Mighty Mouse cartoon featured mice playing in a cornfield, chased by a broom-riding witch and her black cat. Here are four 12 field 3-top peghole hand-painted backgrounds from this Manny Davis-directed short, which was released on 9/15/48. All are fairly plain images, but each would make a great setup with any number of different vintage cels. The backgrounds are noted as 8 (a tree limb, seen at the 1:18 mark), 10 (sky with puffy clouds, 1:50 mark), 18 (grassy field with tree trunk, 2:35 mark) and 43-44 (field of green and tan; we didn't find this, and it might be from another short, as the Terrytoons production number in the upper left is a bit blurred). All are in gouache and/or watercolor with airbrushed highlights, and are in Very Good condition with minor handling and edge wear.
