    The Art of Skiing Room Interior Painted Pan Background (Walt Disney, 1941). "Skiing is fast becoming the most popular of winter sports" says the narrator in the beginning of this short. This was the first of the Goofy "How To" shorts, directed by Jack Kinney and released on 11/14/41. It featured the famous Goofy holler! Goofy is staying at the "Sugar Bowl Ski Resort" in this cartoon. This is a rare trimmed hand-painted pan production background of Goofy's bedroom, where we see him sleeping in the opening scene at 46 seconds into the short. Art is painted in gouache on background board trimmed to 22" x 9.5", with a painted area measuring 17" x 8". A Studio stamp is on back with the date of May 16, 1941. Beautiful, nostalgic painting of an old-fashioned room. Some tape and staples on top border. Very Good condition.
