"Happy Thanksgiving" (circa 1950) - Pen and Ink

I don't have any real information on this piece, but it is certainly appropriate to post this today.

Happy Thanksgiving

----- DATABASE NOTES -----

From an unknown film (circa 1950). Pen & ink illustration. of Mickey, Goofy and Turkey at thanksgiving dinner. Mickey in center holding pie. Steam rising from the food in red. Turkey has bandanna on head and blanket around his shoulders. [Unframed Item: 14-3/8"W x 7-1/4"H] Acquired 2000. SeqID-0776 11/1/2005


  1. This looks like a magazine illustration piece. Maybe something for Western Family magazine?

  2. Interesting thought, thanks Patrick... I'll have to check out Western Family. The only notation on the sketch is a '3"' reference on the left vertical. Mickey's ears have that "quickly drawn" look that was around for a while. Thanks, again, and I hope you had a good Thanksgiving.

  3. Hi,

    I would guess that this comes from an issue of Dell's Walt Disney's Comics & Stories, which had text stories using such illustrations as openers.
