    Moose Hunters Donald Duck Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1937). One wonders if the primary reason that Donald has remained pantless for 80 years is so that the Disney story men could have every excuse to load up each short with more "fanny" gags (Disney's words, not ours). Once again, Donald's posterior is the "butt" of the joke - in fact, he has just sat down on a bee! This offering, released to theaters on February 20, 1937, features Mickey, Donald, and Goofy all tracking the giant animals through an alpine wilderness. It was directed by the prolific Ben Sharpsteen and featured animation by Disney greats Art Babbit, Norm Ferguson, and Clyde Geronimi. Mickey and the fellas have all cobbled together some rather shoddy disguises, Mickey cloaking himself with an appetizing (to a moose, anyway) bush, and Goofy and Donald employing a seductive '"lady moose" costume - complete with antlers! They are about as successful as you might think... After nearly falling off a cliff, Donald swings back up to safety and lands in a small patch of flowers - with a very territorial little bee! In this drawing, seen at the 4:49 point in the film, Donald is shooing away the angry insect. He is rendered in graphite and colored pencil and the image area measures approximately 6" x 5". Drawing is on 12 field 5-peghole animation paper. Minor creasing (image unaffected) and toning of paper. In Very Good condition.
