    Description

    The Wise Hen Production Cel Set-up (Walt Disney, 1934). An outstanding hand-inked and hand-painted two-level nitrate production cel setup of the Wise Old Hen and her baby chicks, asking Donald Duck and Peter Pig to help her with her crops. The latter are members of the "Idle Hour Club" and fake belly aches to get out of helping her. This was the film that marked the debut of Donald Duck. The Wise Old Hen cel is labeled "#52", while the chick cel is marked "374". The Hen measures 3.5". A piece of animation history and a very rare find, in Very Good with slight paint loss in her cheek and ankle.
