"Give The Gift Of Disney Magic"
Just in time for those early-birds making Christmas gift lists (or wish lists, for that matter), D23 has created a campaign suggesting a membership in the Official Community for Disney Fans as a holiday gift. Having started very appropriately with Mickey and Minnie, the campaign has expanded to Huey, Dewey and Louie giving Uncle Scrooge the gift of a D23 membership. I'm of course behind anything with Uncle Scrooge, and the seasonal use of this classic character is entirely apt as he was created by Carl Barks as a take-off on the famed lead character in Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol for the 1948 Donald Duck comic book story "Christmas on Bear Mountain." (I also love the fact that the D23 symbol held by the nephews resembles Uncle Scrooge's Number One Dime.) I assume there will be more of these fun artworks (drawn I'm sure by Dave Pachecco, who drew the original campaign for D23 and the equally clever art for the D23 Expo campaign) as the holiday season kicks into high gear. A D23 membership would indeed make a great gift for any Disney fan on your list. Head on over to the D23 website for more details.
