ITALIAN 1970 RE-RELEASE OF THREE LITTLE PIGS
To mark the 40th anniversary of Mickey Mouse's debut, a special episode of Disneyland tv series was made and aired in 1968 in the US. Titled as 'Mickey Mouse Anniversary Show', it traced the history of Mickey Mouse on screen, presenting a sample of his cartoon shorts. This tv show was theatrically released in Europe in 1970. In Italy, it was titled as Topolino Story and the (non-Mickey) cartoon short Three Little Pigs (1933), in which the Big Bad Wolf had debutted, accompanied its screenings. Below is a full image of one of the publicity materials for Topolino Story, of which a scan of the detail of the notice regarding Three Little Pigs is above.
