Illustration: Disney Christmas Cards

50s Disney Xmas Cards

50s Disney Xmas Cards50s Disney Xmas CardsNot a creature was stirring… except Mickey Mouse!

The weather is turning snappy, and the holiday cards are beginning to arrive, so Christmas must be close on the horizon. It’s time again to share this batch of wonderful Christmas cards from the Disney studio collected by Disney animator, Claire Weeks from 1938 through the mid-1950s. The designs on these cards are so much fun, it makes you wish the films themselves looked this cartoony.
