MICKEY and MINNIE MOUSE in 1961
Lumpy or loveable?
Of course you know I ADORE this version of the characters for their downright funkiness. And naturally, you do too. Right?
Unfortunately, though the proportions were closer to their animated counterparts, shaking hands or giving autographs were functionally out of the question.
To remedy this problem, the designs were updated again only one year later... but not before these two managed a brief and memorable appearance in the 1962 film "40 Pounds of Trouble" starring Tony Curtis and Suzanne Pleshette.
