    The Wise Hen Donald Duck and Peter Pig Production Cel (Walt Disney, 1934). Donald Duck was the last of Disney's "Fab Five" to make his debut. He was brought to the screen by director Wilfred Jackson on June 9, 1934. In this original full nitrate animation cel, Donald and Peter Pig, pretending to have belly aches to get out of doing chores, are fighting over a dinner basket brought to them by the Hen; the basket turns out to hold a bottle of Castor Oil! This a historic hand-inked and painted cel, noted as #437 in the bottom right corner. The scene shown comes in at approximately 6:30 minutes into the short. Donald is about 3" and Peter 3.5" Slight paint loss in the tip of Donald's bill, shoulder, and arm. Very Good condition. This is one of the only production cels of Donald Duck known to exist from this landmark cartoon!
