    Description

    The New Spirit Donald Duck Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1942). "The Yankee Doodle Spirit is in the heart of everyone! It's the Yankee Doodle Spirit that is shouldering a gun!" sings Cliff Edwards (voice of Jiminy Cricket) to open this short. This was the very first Walt Disney World War II propaganda short, made to encourage US citizens to pay their income tax in order to support the war effort. It was co-directed by Wilfred Jackson and Ben Sharpsteen, and nominated for an Academy Award as Best Documentary Short. The cartoon was first released on 1/23/42. This is an outstanding 12 field 5-peghole animation drawing featuring the star of the short, Donald Duck. Great graphite image with green pencil highlights, with a size of 5". A Disney Studio stamp is in bottom right corner. Matted with an opening of 8" x 7"; overall mat size is 14.5" x 13". Minor handling wear. Very Good condition.
