Lot 1082: (Walt Disney Studios, 1939) Original production cels and hand-painted production super-pan background from the short film Donald's Penguin, showing a shotgun-toting Donald and the troublesome Tootsie at odds in an extended house setting. The cels are placed on a matching hand-painted production background. Donald image measures 5 x 4.25 and Tootsie is 2.25 x 2.5 (trimmed to image), with a mat opening of 38.25 x 8. This piece is also framed to an overall size of 48.5 x 18. In fine condition, with a small unobtrusive slice to the bottom right edge of cel (far from the characters and not affecting overall appearance). In this 1939 animated short, Admiral Byrd's arctic present of a young penguin turns disastrous for the unwitting Donald, who goes to such lengths as to hunt the bird within his own house. An impressive presentation of Disney's famously unhinged duck. Oversized.
