Disney Artwork Once Adorned UCLA, Oregon Ticket Stubs
Much has been written about the relationship between Disney’s Donald Duck and the University of Oregon Ducks. However, did you know Disney was producing ticket stub artwork for UCLA as early as 1939? Moreover, on UCLA vs USC ticket stubs, Mickey Mouse seems to favor USC in the artwork, even though Disney was supplying UCLA with the art. Possible a “come together” effort inspired by WWII. Several event tickets had a wartime theme, which is probably the genesis of the relationship. The relationship between UCLA Football and Disney spanned from 1939 – 1942.
