This is an original production cel from the Walt Disney Studios production The Ugly Duckling (1939). This hand-painted cel features the duckling pondering what a toad is. It was created at the studio and used during production, representing an actual frame of animation that was photographed and appears in the cartoon. The overall measurements of the piece are 17.25" x 17.5" framed with the mat opening measuring 7" x 8" and the characters measuring 2.5" x 2.25" for the duckling and 1.25" x 1.5" for the toad. The cel was originally prepared by the studio for sale at the Courvoisier Galleries and is in good condition with some discoloration from aging. It features traditional characteristics of a Courvoisier setup, including the characters being trimmed to image and applied to a custom painted, airbrushed background.
