This week I came to the realization that we are entering the 60th anniversary season for Alice in Wonderland. And to kick off that season I present to you the Walt Disney Productions corporate Christmas card from 1950.
This is one of my favorite pieces of ephemera from Alice. The cover is very cool, picturing Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Pluto as they watch Alice and the White Rabbit turn the pages of a copy of Alice in Wonderland. But the best is to come inside.
A full calendar for 1951 is pictured inside, with fantastic art of the Mad Tea Party, with denizens of all parts of Wonderland celebrating the holiday season. What better way to start of the new year?
The back of the card teases with a glimpse of the upcoming feature Peter Pan, featuring a brunette Tinker Bell!?
