SCDM-316

Original hand-painted background, 10.5" x 12.5" from the 1949 Chuck Jones-directed & Academy Award-nominated short cartoon, "Mouse Wreckers."  The background is presented with a recreated hand-inked, hand-painted ovelay cel matched to the scene.  

“Yeah, yeah. Sure, sure.”  So it goes with Hubie & Bertie, two hobo
mice that want to set up house-keeping in a new home patrolled the champion
mouser, Claude Cat (pun alert: get it?) 
Suffice it to say that Claude ends up shivering in the upper branches of
a tree as our two intrepid rodents roast marshmallows over a roaring flame in
the fireplace.
