Happy Halloween Month!
During October I hope to make a number of posts about scary subjects, and I don’t mean The Barefoot Executive. I mean really scary topics like monsters, witches and Disneyland Showtime, starring Kurt Russell and E. J. Peaker. (To the uninitiated that particular 1970 episode of The Wonderful World of Disney celebrated Disneyland Park’s The Haunted Mansion, which had opened in 1969. Watch for more on this TV spooktacular later this month.) To get things off to a very Halloween-ish start here’s a classic 1953 Little Golden Book cover by Disney artist Dick Kelsey, an adaptation of the Donald Duck cartoon Trick or Treat (released in October 1952).
