    Orphan's Benefit Donald Duck Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1934). Donald Duck moved from supporting character in his first short (The Wise Little Hen) to a co-starring role with Mickey Mouse in his second cartoon, the Burt Gillett-directed Orphan's Benefit. Here he is, from the 1:57 mark in the short, as he begins to recite for the crowd of unruly mice children. The art is in graphite on a sheet of 12 field 2-peghole animation paper, with a full-figure image measuring about 3.5" tall. Wow, what a great early pose, too! It's very well-centered on the page, which is numbered 37 in the lower right corner. Both pegholes are reinforced, and the paper shows minor handling wear. Very Good condition.
