Donald and Mickey started in October 1972. It ran for three years, mixing Disney cartoon strips with cartoons of the Disney films such as Pinocchio or Robin Hood. In 1975, it became Mickey and Donald. This bizarre swap-over of title was referred to in the editorial and it was claimed that there was no power struggle going on...it was all to prepare us for Mickey's own comic, MICKEY MOUSE, which began in October 1975. Donald, meanwhile, had his own new comic - an A5 size called Donald Duck. As this only ran for 18 issues and then merged with Mickey Mouse, the new comic became Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck! Surely, you must be thinking, they were better off in the first place with Donald and Mickey. Mickey Mouse ran for at least 200 issues but then it disappeared. It was good while it lasted. - PW

The pages that weren't in colour were printed on orange paper like the Financial Times. The early issues printed Bedknobs and Broomsticks (Disney's latest film at the time) in comic strip form. There was also a comic for younger readers in the early seventies called Disneyland. You could tell it was for younger readers because the strips had text beneath the panels, whereas in Donald and Mickey the spoke in word balloons. - Clive Huggett

Despite the ongoing popularity of Donald Duck and other classic Disney characters in Europe and Scandinavia, British kids aren't too keen these days. Children in the UK prefer "naughty kid" strips, as the contents of Dandy and Beano testify. It's a shame because there were (and still are) some very entertaning strips produced for the Disney comics. Donald & Mickey contains some good stuff, including classic Carl Barks strips if I remember correctly. I wish I'd hung onto my copies now! - Lew Stringer
