It was certainly no coincidence that the comic book, Walt Disney's Covered Wagons Ho! was released shortly after the film Westward Ho the Wagons arrived in theaters in late 1956. The movie was notable for casting Fess Parker and a number of Mouseketeers as members of a wagon train heading west on the Oregon Trail. The comic cast Mickey and friends as similar pioneering trailblazers, albeit in a more lightweight, comedic vein.
