This is an original 1940's Disney war poster commissioned by the Food and Nutrition Committee of the California War Council. It features great early images of Donald Duck and an early Disney character Horace Horsecollar, working together on a project. Donald hasn't eaten a good breakfast and is loopy, sweaty and having a difficult time, while Horace is whistling along riveting in his forties overalls, a great image!
