Happy Holidays

This will probably be my last blog of 2009 as we leave for Walt Disney World on the 25th and won't return till the 3rd, so I thought I would close out the year with a few Christmas themed postcards. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year; enjoy!

Art Corner "Animated" Postcards

A while back the Major at Gorillas Don't Blog featured three Squeaker cards from the Art Corner in Tomorrowland. I thought I would follow them up with a few Art Corner Animated cards. Below are Nickel Tour #0573 and #0575. They're standard size postcards with a plastic animated square attached to it.




But don't be fooled by the following cards; these are "knock off" cards not listed in The Nickel Tour. The paper cards themselves were produced from the same publisher but, as you can tell, the animated feature is smaller than the space provided. Someone probably had a surplus of cards and scrounged up what they could find to paste on them; besides, what does Donald lifting weights have to do with a mermaid under water?




You can check out the other Animated cards at www.DisneylandPostcards.net/0572-0578/.
