    Tom and Jerry Production Cel Setup with Painted Background (MGM, c. 1950s). Tom and Jerry were featured in a few shorts with Jeannie the baby-sitter. She spends all her time talking on the phone, leaving Tom and Jerry to watch after the baby who wants to crawl around; naturally, they get into all kinds of dangerous situations. The crawling baby and Jeannie were introduced in the 1956 short, Busy Buddies, and featured again in the final Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera-produced short, Tot Watchers (1958). Here are Tom and Jerry with that runaround baby, in a great three-character set up with images of 1" - 6". This beautiful example of 1950s Tom and Jerry images are on a custom hand-painted background, added for presentation purposes. Deep-set matted with an opening of 15" x 10", and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 22" x 16.5". Frame is sold as-is; setup condition is Very Good.
