Souvenir Friday- Squeeker Postcards

A small collection of the wonderfully fun squeeker postcards that were sold as souvenirs in the late 1950s through the 1960s. First up from a very rare series is Danny the Black Lamb. Danny was one of the stars of So Dear to My Heart. The film was one of Walt Disney's favorite films.

Next up is my favorite film Dumbo. The card features Dumbo and his friend Timothy Mouse.

One of the more amusing squeeker's is this one featuring one of the Seven Dwarves.

Final postcard for today is my favorite Professor, Ludwig Von Drake. Here he lectures on Disneyland. Check out his notes on his tablet.

I love the squeakers. You could never mail these now with all the automated devices they use.

I know those first two are awfully rare... in fact I've saved images of ebay auctions in which both went for more than $270 each!

Very nice. I really like the look of the squeakers.

There just isn't enough Ludwig Von Drake merchandise in the parks these days! Maybe it has something to do with the revelations about his early years building rockets for the Nazis.
