Souvenir Friday- Gremlins Have Taken Over
No, not the 1984 movie Gremlins, but rather the World War 2 Gremlins, Fifinella and Widgets created as part of the never produced Walt Disney animated film The Gremlins. The original story written by Flight Officer Roald Dahl dealt with the mythical creatures who wreaked havoc on airplanes in England. This was the first book by Roald Dahl. This piece was produced in the early 1940s and was part of a series of glow in the dark pictures featuring Disney characters. I do collect World War 2 Disney items as it relates to the military insignia designs as well as Gremlin items, but do not search for them as hard as I do for Disneyland items. For more World War 2 Disney items check out Dave Lesjak's Toons At War blog.
