    The Autograph Hound Donald Duck Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1939). "Now you see it, now you don't!" says Donald Duck as he hides an egg under his hat. The Autograph Hound is a 1939 Donald Duck cartoon featuring Donald Duck as an autograph hunter in Hollywood. Numerous celebrities from the 1930s are featured in this short, and this is the first cartoon where Donald's signature sailor hat changed to the color blue. The Autograph Hound features Clarence Nash providing the voice for the semi-intelligible Donald Fauntleroy Duck. This image of Donald just after getting the egg crushed underneath his hat can be seen at the 1:43 mark. It was hand-drawn using graphite with red and green pencil highlights on 12 field 5-peghole animation paper. The image area measures approximately 2.5" x 3.25", and the notation "65" is written in the lower right corner. In addition, a timing chart is written on the right side. The piece has slight toning of the paper due to aging and normal edge wear. Two pegholes are reinforced. Otherwise, the artwork is in Very Good condition.
