Merry Christmas

Like last year, a Christmas one sheet of a Disney short, this time with Mickey and Pluto in Mickey’s Good Deed (Gillett, 1932). The holiday wreaths (Scott #3245-7) are part of the same set and match up with the wreath in the window. Depression era B&W Disney are far better in both humor and nuance, with lots of nice detailing in the animation and a greater gift for character design without being afraid of surrealistic elements. And there are still emotional touches that are charming.

May your Yuletide be full of food, fun, and fellowship.
