Windows to the Past: Disney on Parade

Character costumes have evolved dramatically over the course of Disney history.  This particular Window to the Past showcases Donald Duck, Goofy and Pluto as they appeared in the touring production of Disney on Parade in 1973.  This publicity photo showcases a distinctly leaner Donald and a Goofy with oddly overemphasized eyelashes.  The late Bill Justice was the primary creative force behind Disney on Parade costuming.  For more information on the very early versions of Disney on Parade, return tomorrow for Vintage Headlines: Disney on Parade, right here at 2719 Hyperion.
