    Woodman Spare That Tree The Fox and the Crow Painted Background (Screen Gems/Columbia, 1942). In this short, directed by Bob Wickersham and released on 7/2/42, Fauntleroy Fox is going to chop down the tree where Crawford Crow has made himself a cozy little home. This is an outstanding hand-panted 12 field production background painting of the interior of Crow's home, featuring a stylized awning, a cool cocktail glass, paintings on the wall, and bookshelves with stacks of books. You can see this background around the 5:02 mark. Notes on the bottom border read "Sc. 43-45 Prod 134." Brilliant colors! This is from the personal collection of Cecil Beard (1907 - 1986), who co-wrote many of the Fox and Crow cartoons. Production artwork from this series is incredibly rare. Tape on bottom border, minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition. From the Cecil Beard Estate.
