You poor sod! The correct spelling of Exodus is infact exodus, however the Oddworld series' game is called Abe's Exoddus (a play on words of sorts, placing the word ODD within the game's title, same with Oddysee)
However to stay on topic, as stated above if you search the forums you will find such instances of people taking backgrounds from gameplay. However, if you use Paul's level editor (you can find a download link in the Mods & Hacks section of the forum) You can open up and level and extract the backgrounds from levels and export them to your PC as bmp images.
Hope this helps!
