    Beach Picnic Donald Duck and Pluto Production Cel and Pan Master Background Setup (Walt Disney, 1939). Outstanding hand-inked, hand-painted production cels of Donald Duck and Pluto. These great sequenced production cels are on their hand-painted PAN Master production background. The background can be found at the opening scene, at about 29 seconds in, while the Donald and Pluto gag cels can be seen around the 7:33 - 7:34 mark, when Pluto is fighting the fly paper. This is from the Clyde Geronimi-directed short that was released on 6/9/39. The hand-painted background beach scene is a beautiful painting in its own right! Backgrounds of this quality from this era are rare. The cels are nice full-figure images of 4". Framed with Plexiglas, with a mat opening of 26" x 9". Slight paint separation in Donald's eyes, otherwise Fine condition.
