Issue 605, 1951

Mickey Mouse Weekly was a weekly tabloid comic with full colour photogravure printing, launched by Willbank Publications, later Odhams Press, on 8 February 1936 and running for 920 issues (during World War II it was published fortnightly). To begin with it featured almost exclusively Walt Disney characters, about a third of which were American reprints, but as the years went on it also featured original characters. In 1957 Odhams lost the rights to Disney characters. The original, non-Disney material was continued in a new weekly, Zip. The Disney characters continued in Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse, published by Walt Disney Productions through Vernon Holdings until 1959, when it was renamed Walt Disney's Weekly, until 1961, when it closed.
