    Terry-Toons Stock (20th Century Fox, 1939). One Sheet (27" X 41") "Billy Mouse's Akwakade." Offered here is a stock poster promoting a Billy Mouse cartoon from 1939. As attractive as the cartoon art on this poster is, the most impressive image is that of the 1939 New York World's Fair grounds in the inset, featuring the instantly recognizable Trylon and Perisphere. Founded by Paul Terry in 1928, this long-lived cartoon studio is most famous for bringing Mighty Mouse and Heckle and Jeckle to the screen. Although the studio was often regarded as a cheap, low budget outfit, it was highly successful, and actually earned four Academy Award nominations for Best Animated Short Film in 1942, 1944, 1945, and 1958. After Terry retired and sold the studio in 1955, it went through several hands, eventually enjoying a brief renaissance in the 1960s with the addition of talented animator Ralph Bakshi to the staff. The poster had edge wear, crossfold separation, and scratches in the lower left, but professional restoration has expertly addressed these slight flaws, returning the poster to a like-new state. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
