The one thing I always heard about backgrounds is that they should REMAIN in the background. Achieving that is easier said than done. Like most things in animation, people tend only to notice them when they're NOT done properly. Viewers take them for granted, as they also take for granted that everything else should be beautiful, too.
Backgrounds are animation's supporting actors. Sometimes they really get to shine. Supporting roles can be just as difficult - or even more so - to execute.
