    Donald's Penguin Donald Duck and Tootsie Production Cel Courvoisier Setup (Walt Disney, 1939). In the opening scene of this short, Donald gets a gift addressed from Admiral Bird from the South Pole made out to Donald Duck Hollywood USA. Donald says, "Oh boy, a present!" This is a great hand-inked, hand-painted production cel of Donald Duck with his gift, Tootsie the penguin. You can see this image at about the :25 second mark into the cartoon, right after Tootsie comes out of the box. This short came out on 8/11/39 and was directed by Jack King. It was one of the last theatrical shorts where Donald wore a white sailor hat. This is a Courvoisier cel setup. The cel is trimmed to image and mounted on a wood veneer background. Nice images of 3" and 6" with hand-airbrushing of shadows on the veneer. The setup includes the original cream-colored mat with "Donald's Penguin" in script writing. Matted with an opening of 8" x 6" and framed with glass to an overall size of 16" x 14.5". The original Courvoisier label is on back of the new frame. An adorable pose! Fine condition.
