On this date in 1952, Walt Disney's Trick or Treat spooked theater audiences for the first time. That year also saw the publication of the comic book adaptation (Donald Duck no. 26) of the animated short. Written (from Ralph Wright's storyboards) and drawn by the legendary Carl Barks, the comic is in itself a classic. Decades later, in 1977, Barks painted a richly detailed oil painting based on his Trick or Treat cover. In addition to the inclusion of Pluto (complete with his own costume), Barks included a ghost. a black cat and some spooky looking bats. All devilish details designed to delight for our Countdown to Halloween 2021. (Be sure and check out the other blogs participating on the blog roll on the right).
