"Wise Little Hen" (1934)
Here is what has been called: Probably the earliest known production cel of Donald Duck. Hype aside, it is an exceptionally nice cel of Don with his early extended beak. Thank heavens he got a Nose Job later! But he certainly didn't lose any of his temper!!! [Note: sorry about the junk at the bottom of the frame. I was taking the photo for insurance purposes.]
The background is only a photostatic copy and not a Master Background. I gather that one of the former owners of this piece paid quite a bit for it thinking that Donald was on the Master Background from the scene.
The pieces framed up nicely and the colors pop off the page more than is shown in these images.
