    The New Spirit Donald Duck Production Cel Setup and Background (Walt Disney, 1942). An exceptional hand-inked, hand-painted trimmed production cel setup of Donald Duck on a Key Master 12 field hand-painted production background. This is from the opening scene of this short at about the 31-second mark. The cels are trimmed to image and mounted on a production background. This is from the very first film created as part of Walt Disney's World War II propaganda productions. The short was released on 1/23/42 and was directed by Wilfred Jackson and Ben Sharpsteen. Cliff Edwards, the voice of Jiminy Cricket, sings the opening theme song, and Clarence Nash provided the voice for the film short's hero, Donald Duck. This was a cartoon encouraging people to pay their income tax to support the war effort. It received a Documentary Film Academy Award nomination. Nice images of Donald Duck of 2" - 4". Matted to an overall size of 14" x 12". Fine condition.
