    Modern Inventions Donald Duck Animation Drawing (Walt Disney 1937). Donald is determined to keep a hat on his head in spite of an over-enthusiastic butler robot, insistent on taking them from him. Lucky for Donald he always keeps a spare hat up his sleeve. Jack King directed the short and this image can be found around the 1:47 mark. Production drawings don't get much better than this magnificent, full-figure drawing of Donald wearing a top hat. He measures 4.5" x 3", is rendered in graphite and red pencil on 12 field, 5-peghole animation paper, and numbered 56 in lower right corner. This cartoon is notable as the very first storyline that Carl Barks contributed to at Disney. It shows minor handling; otherwise Condition is Fine.
