Surprise for Mickey Mouse

Surprise for Mickey Mouse
a Little Golden Book
1971, Second Printing 1972

This Golden Book tells the story of Mickey Mouse and his invitation to direct the orchestra at the Mickey Mouse Revue at WDW.  This copy is a second printing from 1972.  The first printing was in 1971.  Note the 'Florida Flag' used on the logo.

Mickey is excited to receive his telegram and shares it will all of his friends.  Minnie, Horace, the 3 Little Pigs, Geppetto, Pinocchio, Donald and his nephews, Dumbo & Timothy and Daisy don't seem to care.

When he gets to the Magic Kingdom and meets the orchestra, it turns out to be all of his friends.
Check out more about the now extinct Mickey Mouse Revue at Walt Dated World.
Mickey's Philharmagic now occupy's the Revue's original space.  Notice the 'foreshadowing' in the last picture of the book.
