    Truant Officer Duck Clubhouse Interior Pan Production Background (Walt Disney, 1941). "Remember, I'm an officer of the law!" says Truant Officer Donald Duck to his mischievous hooky-playing nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie. This short was co-written by Carl Barks and Jack Hannah; it was directed by Jack King and released on 8/1/41. It would go on to be nominated for Academy Award for Best Cartoon Short. This is an outstanding pan hand-painted production background of the inside of the nephews' clubhouse. The front door is marked "Pirates Den." Signs of "Scram" and "Keep Out" are also posted. This is from the scene where Donald is trying to break down the door with a large ramming log. It can be seen around the 3:26 mark. All this background needs now is a great Donald Duck or nephews cel! Gouache on trimmed background board measuring 24.5" x 9.5". Studio stamps are on the reverse. Tape on non-painted border, minor handling and edge wear. In Very Good condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
