DescriptionWolf! Wolf! Background Art Group of 2 (Terrytoons, 1944). Mannie Davis directed this Mighty Mouse take on "Little Bo Peep;" it was released on 6/22/44, and is considered the only MM cartoon in public domain. Here's a pair of original hand-painted 12 field backgrounds from this short. The first is noted as Sc 22, and is seen at the 2:42 mark within the short (this is the grinding wheel base, where a wolf sharpens his knife). The next background, noted as Sc 23, is seen a few seconds later, at the 2:45 mark (this is the table where a chef wolf chops up carrots for the pot; the wolf's foot seen by the table is a pasted on trimmed production cel, hand-inked and painted). Art is in gouache/watercolor on skimmed board, each with a Terrytoons stamp on the reverse. Very Good condition with minor handling, and a faint glue stain near the pasted-on foot.
