This week marks a big milestone for Donald Duck: It's the 80th anniversary of his debut in Silly Symphonies' "The Wise Little Hen."

In honor of the celebration of this milestone, we take a look at some storyboard sketches for a never-produced late 1930s Donald Duck short.

...that were also bobby-soxers (?!). In the end, Walt Disney abandoned what seemed to be developing into a rather interesting short. No reason is known why the short was never made.

Check out more story sketches from The Delivery Boy over at Disney's official fan club, D23.
