    Description

    Donald's Cousin Gus Title Card/Cel with Key Master Background (Walt Disney, 1939). This is a favorite of Donald Duck fans, co-written by Carl Barks and Jack Hannah. Jack King directed this short about Donald's gluttonous cousin Gus Goose who eats him out of house and home. This cartoon was shown on 5/3/39 on television as one of the first prerecorded sponsored shows on NBC. It was theatrically released on 5/19/39. It was released overseas in various countries in 1940, '46, '60, '75 and '84. It also was shown on Disney television shows over the years. This is an original hand-inked, hand-painted title cel with a Key Master hand-painted Gus Goose background. Some of the earlier cartoons only used the title cel with no image. The image was possibly added to later releases. Production number of 2221 is in bottom left border. Gus Goose image is painted in gouache on 5-peghole 12 field background board. Cute, adorable full-figure image, with a size of 5.5". Minor handling wear. Very Good condition.
