Mickey Mouse Weekly

 

Mickey Mouse Weekly is a 1936-1957 weekly British tabloid Disney comics magazine, the first British comic with full colour photogravure printing.[1] The comic was inspired by the 1935 launch of Mickey Mouse Magazine, the first American Disney newsstand publication.[2] 920 issues were published by Willbank Publications and then Odhams Press between 8 February 1936 and 28 December 1957.[3][4] The comics were said to be “drawn in a slick, smooth style which was clearly influenced by American comics”.[5]

The magazine began as a 12-page tabloid, with four pages in color — the cover pages, and the centerfold. The early covers were drawn by Wilfred Haughton — a full-color comic panel with many characters, each one saying a joke or a pun.[2]

Mickey Mouse Weekly featured American reprints as well as original British Disney comics material, including the first Donald Duck comic book serial, originally called Donald and Donna, which began in issue #67 (15 May 1937), drawn by William A. Ward. There were 15 weekly parts of this first serial featuring Donald and his girlfriend Donna, an early version of Daisy Duck.[2] Donna left the series after the first story, which was continued as Donald and MacDonald Duck and Donald Duck with Mac for the next three years, ending in issue #222 (4 May 1940).[6] The magazine also featured reprints of Floyd Gottfredson’s Mickey Mouse comic strip continuities in full color on the back cover.[7]

As the American Mickey Mouse Magazine inspired Mickey Mouse Weekly, the new publication inspired more European spinoffs, including Switzerland’s Micky Maus Zeitung (1936-37) and Sweden’s Musse Pigg Tidningen (1937-38), which used Haughton’s covers and other British material.[7]

The magazine ceased production after Odhams lost the rights to the Disney characters in 1957. Disney then published Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse with Vernon Holding; the relatively unsuccessful magazine was renamed Walt Disney’s Weekly in 1959 and discontinued in 1961.[3] Non-Disney content was continued in Odhams Press’ Zip, a 1958 weekly which merged into Swift in 1959.
