1976 Walt Disney Comics Digest #57 - February Foolery

In the early 1940s, Disney comic books began running crossover stories with characters from Snow White being joined by others like Thumper and Dumbo. This mashup trend continues to this day. February Foolery is a five-page tale starring Goofy along with the Old Witch. Other characters include: Brer Rabbit and the Three Little Pigs. It first appeared in the Dell Mickey Mouse Almanac from December 1957. Original price: 25¢. It was written by Carl Fallberg; pencils and ink by Jack Bradbury. The story was reprinted in the Gold Key Walt Disney Comics Digest #57 from February 1, 1976. Price: 69¢.

Also included in the Comics Digest was a Snow White Wishing Well game.
