Freeze Frame! - Hench's Palace of Pleasure

Here's a wonderful and very funny Freeze Frame! related to yesterday's post about amusement parks. The amusement pier background created for the Donald Duck cartoon Straight Shooters, and later used again in Hold That Pose and Father's Weekend, features a subtle but hilarious tribute to one particular studio veteran. One of the pier's entertainment venues sports a sign advertising Hench's Palace of Pleasure, a clear reference to Disney legend and famed Imagineer John Hench.
