    Donald Gets Drafted Donald Duck Title Card Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1942). Here is a spectacularly rare piece: the original drawing created for the opening titles of Donald Gets Drafted, the first of a continuous six-part series in which Donald Duck serves in the Army during World War II. Donald Gets Drafted tells the story of Donald's introduction to military life, and it was directed by Jack King with a story by Carl Barks, Jack Hannah and Harry Reeves and released 5/1/1942. Additionally, it famously revealed for the first time Donald's middle name of Fauntleroy. This incredible, large and centered portrait of Donald Duck is rendered in graphite on 12 field 5-peghole animation paper, and the drawing measures 5.25" x 6.25". The paper shows handling and edge wear with light vertical folds near the left edge and some tearing at the pegholes and right side. The condition overall is Very Good.
