Call me sentimental, but being this close to Christmas, I just can't stay away from holiday themed posts. This activity was featured on the back cover of Walt Disney's Merry Christmas, published in 1960.

One of the very cool things about Disney Comics back then were the crossover stories. In this particular issue, Gyro Gearloose starred with the Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf in the story "Plans Aplenty." In "The Bewitched Dolls," Daisy Duck's nieces April, May and June appear with Dumbo, Pinocchio and Gepetto and the Wicked Witch. In the comic's final story "Too Few Clues," Chip and Dale cross paths with Doc and again the Wicked Witch. Fun stuff when you're a kid, great nostalgia when you get just a little older.
