THE BRITISH-MADE 'SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS' STRIP

The above scan is from the color central pages of the no. 526 (dated June 10th, 1950) of Britain's Mickey Mouse Weekly comics magazine which marks the debut of the British-made Disneyic gag comic strip series 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs'. Despite the title, Snow White would rarely appear in the series after the initial strip and the series in actuality feature only the dwarfs in most cases, as in the below scan from no. 532: 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs' would cease by early 1951 (leaving its space to a British-made Thumper strip), which is a pity as it was one of the better British-made Disneyic strips in terms of both art and humor. At some point in the future, I hope to scan and post all the 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs' strips of MMW in my collection.
