    Anyone remember the short serials of Mickey at the end of "Walt Disney Comics"? (Donald Duck was always main story) Titles?

    For the most part these were reprints of the 1930s "Mickey Mouse" newspaper comic strip, edited and reformatted into comic book pages, with art by Floyd Gottfredson. An interview with Gottfredson in which he discusses his approach to the strip and gives a number of titles can be found here.

    I am more of a Duck man and just love the old Carl Barks adventure stories featuring Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck and, of course, Huey, Dewey and Louie.

    I'm not much of a Mouse man but I do know that the Walt Disney Comics & Stories had Mickey artwork by Carl Fallberg and Paul Murray when I grew up. These often featured Mickey wearing what looks like a trilby hat! Even as a kid I found his friend Goofy, well, goofy!

    I only discovered the old Floyd Gottfredson Mickey Mouse comics in the 1990s. These stories, from the late 1920s & 1930s are of their time and may be considered a bit racist by modern standards. They certainly weren't in any comics that I read in the 1970s that I can recall.

    The (3) I remember most were: "Mystery of the Robot Army", "Monarch of Medioka" and "Mystery at Hidden River" . Know any other titles or plots?
