(Disney, 1955) A hand-painted "The Ugly Duckling" production background, signed on its original mat frame by Walt Disney. The background was prominently used in the popular first season episode of the Disneyland television show, "From Aesop to Hans Christian Anderson." For this episode, Walt Disney presented memorable clips from past Disney cartoon short subjects that were based upon famous fables. This background, inspired by a scene from the similarly titled 1939 Silly Symphonies short, was used for the introduction to "The Ugly Duckling" segment as a "held background." Entirely hand-painted on artist's paper mounted to board, the background has hand-written production notes along the bottom edge, and was prepared by the Walt Disney Studios Art Props department and signed by Walt to be given as a gift. A remnant of the Studio's Art Props department certification label is still affixed to the reverse. The painting has a viewable image size of 11.5"x13.5" within the 18.5"x19.5" mat. The background is in very fine condition. There is some wear along the edges of the mat.
