    Xavier Atencio "World War Goofy and Donald" Illustration (Walt Disney, 1943). Xavier Atencio was a Disney animation artist from 1938-1965 before moving to WED as an Imagineer for Disneyland, where he wrote the lyrics to the "Yo Ho a Pirate's Life for Me" as well as dialogue and songs for the Haunted Mansion. He retired in 1984 and was inducted as a Disney Legend in 1996. This is a rare original graphite drawing of Goofy as a Scottish officer alongside Donald Duck in a World War II uniform. Great 3" and 6" images. The drawing is signed by Atencio (long known for his dramatic signature using the "X" from his first name) and dated 1943. The drawing is on trimmed paper and mounted to another sheet of paper on top of a 12" x 8" sheet of black paper. A "Permit to Ride" form dated 6/20/44 is mounted above the drawing. It should be noted that Atencio was a captain in the 2nd Photo Tech Squadron and served as a photo interpreter in the US Army Air Forces in England from 1941-1945. He provided aerial surveillance for military intelligence. This WWII-era drawing is a rare find from this very special Disney Legend. In Fine condition.
