    Mr. Duck Steps Out Donald's House Interior Pan Background Painting (Walt Disney, 1940). Mr. Duck Steps Out, written by Carl Barks, is considered one of Donald Duck's greatest theatrical shorts. It featured Donald Duck with Daisy and the nephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie. The short opens with Donald kissing a picture of Daisy, putting on his hat and jitterbugging out his front door to go see her. He at first does not realize that the nephews are jitterbugging and following him right behind him! This is a rare hand-painted pan production background of the interior of Donald Duck's house, which can be seen around the :57 mark into the short. The short was directed by Jack King and released on 6/7/40. Gouache on pan background board measuring 29" x 10". Studio stamp and OK approvals on reverse. Beautiful interior home painting. Minor handling and edge wear. Slight trimming to background as well. Overall Very Good condition.
