A few months ago, Mondotees announced that they had teamed up with Sideshow Collectibles and Disney for a new poster series and to kick things off they released a poster for the Mickey Mouse classic, STEAMBOAT WILLIE. Well, the Disney series continues with their newest addition....THE WISE LITTLE HEN. This particular cartoon is important as it introduced the iconic Donald Duck to the world for the first time! It's the Donald Duck ROOKIE Poster, movie used feathers not included.
Poster by Tom Whalen. 18" x 24" 5 color screen print. Hand numbered. Edition of 325. Printed by D&L Screen Printing. $45
Tom talks about the poster:
i've been really, really excited to show this one off. watching these old shorts (in the name of research) with my son has been incredible. the fact that he responds to them the way that he does speaks to their long-lasting quality. i am consistently amazed by the craftsmanship of early disney animation and love that he and i can share these amazing cartoons together.
even though donald is a major character in "the wise little hen", he's hardly the star. we chose, however to spotlight him on this poster because of the timeless character that he'd become in so many disney productions that followed this one.
