Animation Backgrounds

When watching old animated cartoons I often find myself amazed by the background art more so than the character running around in front of it. Older Disney cartoons and Looney Toons, have some awesome scenes that may only be shown for a few half seconds. It's hard to understand how an artist could put so much time and dedication into an image that would be seen for such an insignificant amount of time. That, and if the cartoon is any good, the audience will be focused on the animated characters. It seems to me that those artists go mostly unaccredited and unknown. I was happy to find an amazing blog that showcases some old background art, lots of it! :
