DescriptionWalt Disney Studio - Mother Goose Goes Hollywood Donald Duck Cel Original Animation Art (Walt Disney, 1938). Donald Duck is showcased on this cel from the Walt Disney Silly Symphony cartoon short "Mother Goose Goes Hollywood." In this 'toon a collection of animated celebrities spoof the characters in wacky interpretations of famous old nursery rhymes. The Disney animators displayed their awesome caricaturing talents, melding the personalities of media celebrities with those of the nursery characters. The Silly Symphonies became the school where Walt Disney's animators mastered color and began to experiment with plot, characterization, and photographic special effects. This gorgeous cel features Donald Duck and a caricature of Joe Penner. Mostly forgotten today, radio comic Joe Penner was a major craze back in Depression-era 1933 and 1934. His comedy consisted of a lot of slapstick silliness that helped audiences forget their troubles and get happy. For his burlesque routine, Penner would go out on stage with some sort of prop and say to his straight man, "Wanna buy a..." whatever the prop was. This bit got no laughs until one day when he went out on stage with a wooden decoy and said, "Wanna buy a duck?" The house went wild. Penner would parlay this one simple line into a major radio and film career. Here he is, the most famous of all ducks. The image area of this cell measures 9" x 10.5" and the art is in Excellent condition. So tell us... "Wanna buy a Duck?"
