Souvenir Friday- 1960s Bucket Hats

One of my favorite sub-category of collectible souvenirs from Disneyland are bucket hats. The hats are simple 6 panel hats that are usually very colorful and screened with the Disney characters. The first hat features some unusual characters including a nice Ludwig Von Drake wearing a fez and one of the Duck nephews also wearing a fez, as well as the other two Duck nephews. It would be interesting to compare the images to the source art. Of course, Mickey Mouse is on the hat.

The second is a neat version with various suns and Disneyland graphics. Unfortunately a few of the screens are light and do not read against the background material. One does have the title for Happiest Place on Earth.
