This new book is in the same familiar format as my previous
“Disney Treasures” and “Disney Keepsakes” books, but concentrates on the Big Cheese exclusively. Yes, it’s All-Mickey! Don’t
we all agree that he deserves a Treasures book of his own?
Some of the fantastic removable pieces of memorabilia you
can look forward to are:
- Hand-written by Walt, a list of gag suggestions for a Mickey cartoon with the cash bonus he
was awarding each one
- A highly-crafted vintage pop-up from the 1930s.
- A theatre program & bookmark from “Fantasia”
Early Disneyland postcards
Individual chapters are devoted to varied all-Mickey topics from the Fanchon & Marco vaudeville
stage shows to Disneyland parades, and from early merchandise to postal commemoratives. Also included are sections on Mickey’s
most memorable cartoons, his patriotic contribution to World War II, and even a fully-illustrated “mouse family tree” compiled
in one place for the first time.
The highlight of the book, however, has to be the lavishly illustrated, six-page chapter
on “The Mouse That Might Have Been”—all about some Mickey cartoons that were planned, but never made it to the screen. Included
in this chapter are removable reproductions of never-before-seen story sketches for a short called “Mickey’s Hotel.”
hope everyone enjoys my latest book and has as much fun going through it as I had compiling it.
