more bugs

about a year ago I posted the first recreated backgrounds from MR.BUGS GOES TO TOWN. this beautiful animated feature film was produced by the FLEISCHER STUDIOS in miami, florida, and released by PARAMOUNT on december 5, 1941 – two days before the attack on PEARL HARBOUR. that might have been the reason why it was a financial disaster at the box office with only $ 241.000 against costs of $ 713.500. here now a few more recreated backgrounds from the film.

I’ve always liked this film and have seen it dozens of times. The backgrounds are a real treat from the opening multiplane shot to the gardens in the sky. The character rendering isn’t bad, either. Thanks for the beautifully reconstructed frame grabs.

the last scene ( the purchase on the building with the working men) is very well directed.
