Yikes! Mickey and Minnie are looking pretty primitive in this 1959 image. Just gaze into those wide, unblinking eyes. He's staring right at us...and I think he's hungry!! It's odd, these designs look more like the 1930's characters than the middle-class, suburban Mickey and Minnie of the 50's. I kind of like them for their simple, slightly scary appearance! And for whatever it's worth, I like the Mickey cartoons of the 20's and early 30's a lot too. Back when he could be a rascal, and visit cannibal islands or haunted laboratories. But I digress!
Hey, is that an Art Corner poster? Those things were great for making kites, I used to have a bunch of 'em.
