Argentinian Coloring Book from 1959 - ¡Ven a Pintar! #4

From their series of Disney coloring books “¡Ven a Pintar!” this is the fourth in the series, featuring Alice.  Consisting of 16 large pages to color or paint, the line art is quite good and appears to be either copies of or redrawn from the Whitman Paint Book.

I've seen Alice depicted with the pink pinafore and stockings a few time from South American countries, but have never been able to figure out why.

Alice in Wonderland Comic Adaptation in Margriet Magazine from the Netherlands

Previously we've seen serialized adaptations of the Alice film in comic strips and magazine from the US, the UK, Turkey, and Belgium.  It turns out there is another, also based on the Belgian Mickey Magazine adaptation, that appeared in a weekly women's magazine in the Netherlands.

Published from 1938 through the current day, Margriet ran a serialized adaptation in Dutch from December 22, 1951 to April 19, 1952.  While almost exactly the same as their Belgian counterparts, the individual installments do have one unique feature: color scheme.  Each issue (at this time anyway) is two-tone, but the non-black color varies from issue to issue, being one of green, red, or yellow.
