A Mouse Centric Post

Two publicity images featuring Mickey Mouse as a costumed character at Disneyland. First image promotes the Disneyland Pigskin Classic which was a pre-season collegiate football game and the Great American State Fair in 1990. The poses feature Mickey along with Minnie, Donald, and Goofy. Both events were designed to increase attendance in the months of lowered attendance, prior to the explosion of annual passes which now create full days throughout the year.

The next publicity shot is of the various versions of Mickey and Minnie throughout the years. The first feature the costumes borrowed from Ice Capades, then the first in house costumes, to the classic Mickey now seen at the parks.
