    Donald Duck's 50th Birthday Donald Duck and Goofy Production Cel Sequenced Group of 3 (Walt Disney, 1984). On November 13th, 1984 (over 30 years ago!), The Magical World of Disney presented a TV Special celebrating Donald Duck's 50th Birthday. It was hosted by Dick Van Dyke and included an array of guest stars. It even had Andy Warhol unveiling his Donald Duck "The New Spirit" artwork for the occasion. This is a superb sequenced series of three hand-painted production cels featuring both Donald Duck and Goofy from this special. Each one has a Disney seal on the cel and a Disney COA. In the top cel, Goofy comes out of a box to surprise Donald Duck on his birthday -- and surprise him he did, by trampling poor Donald in the next cel! Wak! Nice images of 4" - 5". These are some of the only cels we have seen come to market from this historic TV Special. All three cels are on a print background for presentation purposes, and are all matted together in one common vertical frame. Mat openings are 12" x 9". Framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 21.5" x 41.25". Fine condition.
