In-Store Advertising Poster for Walt Disney Presents & Disneyland Records 1959
Alice in Wonderland has had a love affair with Christmas throughout the years. Most fans know that Disney's first TV show was One Hour in Wonderland on Christmas Day in 1950, and the film (edited) was broadcast on the second episode of the Disneyland TV show in 1954. But did you know it was on TV a second time on Christmas Day? In 1959 on Walt Disney Presents (the next incarnation of the Disneyland TV show), Alice in Wonderland was again broadcast. And for whatever reason, promotional adverts were created for stores that sold the various Alice records. This is one such poster, about the size of a lobby card, advertising the show itself on Christmas, and the records for sale in the shop.
