    Billposters Production Background (Walt Disney, 1940). Donald Duck and Goofy have been hired to display posters for a no name soup company. As is common with the team-up, a relatively easy task hits its fair share of bumps. Seen at the 2:31 mark of the 1940 Clyde Geronimi-directed theatrical short Billposters, this is a stunning hand-painted original production background. Donald Duck is seen putting up a poster on this wall as a goat approaches to eat his posters. Rendered expertly in watercolor on 15.25" x 9.5" board, this piece contains production notes written in the lower right corner. On the back it bears an official Walt Disney Productions stamp with the hand-written production number 2231 and scene number 23.2. The painting shows minor handling and edge wear with staple holes in the upper corners. The condition is Very Good.
