A 'cut-out' collection of Disney characters were run in the center pages of Britain's Mickey Mouse Weekly issues from 1938. Below scan is of the Big Bad Wolf cut-out from no. 110:

The illustrations from this cut-out collection were also printed on the cards of a card game from Britain titled as 'Shuffled Symphonies', as seen in this scan of the Big Bad Wolf card:

Its title derived from the title of a series of illustrated stories in Mickey Mouse Weekly, this card game carries a "permission" notice from the said magazine. What makes this game special for the Big Bad Wolf angle is that his card is the pivotal one, as can be read from the rules booklet inside the deck:

The card game itself would be promoted in the magazine on issue no. 145, later in the same year:

Next year, the same card game would be re-released as part of a promo package of a British soap brand.
