Johnny Johnsen was a versatile background artist, rendering cityscapes and the vast outdoors equally well. There are no long pans over vistas in Ventriloquist Cat (released 1950) as in some of the other cartoons he worked on, but here are some examples of his work. Note the well-drawn refrigerator.
Tex Avery has an odd sense of time in this cartoon. These last two backgrounds are from scenes that follow each other, in terms of plot, by a minute or so. Yet it has quickly become dusk.
Avery gets his sense of time back at the end of the cartoon, as the colours change, showing the dogs have been after the cat for hours.
