To welcome 2014, here's the January 1938 issue of Mickey Mouse Magazine (Issue #28). The headline for this post should probably be something like "Duck! Here Comes The New Year" as it's Donald (not Goofy) who represents the incoming year. Donald pretended to be a baby in at least one on-screen appearance before the cover was created, in Modern Inventions (1937). However, the inspiration for this infant appearance may have been Officer Duck (1939) which may have been in development if not production at this time. Happy New Year!
