    Donald in Mathmagic Land Donald Duck and Walking Pencil Production Cel (Walt Disney, 1959). "That's an odd-looking creature" says Donald Duck as he sees and tracks math-type footprints. He then asks "What kind of crazy place is this?" Here is an outstanding, hand-inked, hand-painted, trimmed production cel of Donald Duck with the Walking Pencil in the film's opening scene. This 26-minute featurette was released on 6/26/59. Ham Luske was supervising director with Woolie Reitherman, Les Clark, and Joshua Meador as sequence directors. This film was nominated for an Academy Award but then also shown in schools everywhere for years as part of Math teaching. You can find this sequence of the Walking Pencil playing tic-tac-toe around the 1:22 mark. Great images, with sizes of 4" and 6". Matted with an opening of 11" x 8.5"; overall mat size is 17" x 12.5". Quite an unusual image! Very Good condition.
