Richard Thomas - A-Lad-In His Lamp
I usually don't really care for Richard Thomas' backgrounds on the Warner cartoons. I much prefer those of Paul Julian, Phil DeGuard, and Pete Alvarado. "A-Lad-In His Lamp" is an exception, as I absolutely love the BGs in this cartoon!
This is a case where the BGs are just the icing on the cake, as this is a really great (and funny) cartoon with lots of bombastic animation by Manny Gould of Smokey the Genie (Jim Backus).
