HIGHWAYMAN BIG BAD WOLF CUT-OUT FROM 1940
The above cut-out from the no. 210 of Britain's Mickey Mouse Weekly enables the readers to dress up Big Bad Wolf as a highwayman, a fitting identity for this character. Highwayman was the name given to outlaws who laid in wait on roads and robbed travellers in the medieval ages in England. It has been recorded that they were nevertheless subject to a degree of admiration from the public and heroic portraits in literature.
The below scan is the instructions to the readers regarding the cut-out.
