    Polar Trappers Donald Duck Color Model Cel Setup (Walt Disney, 1938). Pair of original 12 field hand-inked and painted color model cels of Donald Duck and two penguins he is trying to trap. Donald is doing a "Pied Piper" thing on his cel, trying to coral the mother and baby penguins (that get away) on the other cel. Please note that these are full nitrate cels with clear nitrate cels behind them. The Donald cel is marked RM10, while the other is noted as RM 10 Penguin Model. The combined image area is approximately 2.5" wide x 1.5" tall. This Ben Sharpsteen-directed short was released on June 17, 1938, and was the first Donald and Goofy short not to include Mickey Mouse. Paint loss throughout both cels; Fair condition.
