  • FAVORITE STANDARDS, featuring the stupendous six, Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Daisy, and Pluto

    Other files include: Men of Means and Mean Men, a cat post, a dog pound, and all the other mice. Supporting characters--including love interests, henchmen, and unforgettable group acts such as the Seven Dwarfs and the Lost Boys--are all part of the mix.

    These generously illustrated character folders contain film images and head shots, comic strips, handwritten notes, and memorabilia. You'll also find vital stats, including special skills and methods of menace, honors and awards received, and comments from animators, reviewers, and even Walt Disney himself!
