On October 18, 1967 Disneys animated version of the Jungle Book was released. (Exactly 29 years after those model sheets in the last post were OK:ed...)
But observant readers of the Mickey Mouse daily strip already had a chance to see what Mowgli looked like.
In the strip dated July 6, 1966 we see Morty reading from one of his favourite books. And who's on the cover? Ta-da!
Is this drawing of Mowgli, by Floyd Gottfredson, the first of Disneys version to see print?
