"Mr. Bug Goes To Town" (1941) - Master Background

For me, there was a lot to like about some of the artwork in "Mr. Bug Goes To Town" (1941) and I think this background proves the point. Really quite good.

"Mr. Bug Goes To Town" (1941) - Master Background

The film was released just 3 days before the attack on Pearl Harbor and did not have good box office receipts -- the two events may or may not be connected. At any rate, Paramount fired Max Fleischer and the Famous Studios was born.


I probably should have framed the piece using hinges so that the entire background could be seen. Ah, well....

In an earlier post, I showed a note that Dave Fleischer sent to his doctor. The note was on "Mr. Bug Goes To Town" stationary.
