Fun is different things to different people. For Uncle Scrooge McDuck, it always inolves money. Time Out for Fun depicts the Fowl Old Miser taking time out for his fun, while nephew Donald Duck and siblings Huey, Dewey and Louie are all absorbed in their own pleasures. Produced in the mid-1990's in signed, limited quantities by Another Rainbow from a famous 1973 money bin oil painting by Carl Barks, it was never officially released and the only prints available on this website are those from the personal collection of Bruce Hamilton. The remainder became the property of the Walt Disney Company as part of a settlement with Mr. Hamilton. The whereabouts of these other lithographs remains a mystery - although some of the prints have surfaced in Europe. Time Out for Fun is the eighteenth miniature lithograph in a long-run series reproduced by the Black Box of Chicago: a continuous-tone, twelve (12) color method; eight inches high by ten inches wide (8" x 10"); on heavy, archival, Opalesque KeramiqueTM paper; eleven and one half inches high by thirteen inches wide (11 1/2" x 13").
