Friday the Thirteenth: Donald's Lucky Day

Take a look at the calendar. Today, Friday the 13th, is Donald Duck's lucky day according to the 1939 Disney short! Three of the five original illustrations of this cartoon short by Tom Wood for Good Housekeeping have survived. In general, the Disney illustrations for Good Housekeeping are among the most extraordinary illustrations the studio ever created.
