NotesOswald, originally a Disney creation and visually the immediate predecessor of Mickey Mouse, was at this point owned by Universal Pictures. According to Bob Rozakis at http://www.comicsbulletin.com/bobro/103767090390785.htm it was probably the presence of this licensed feature that discouraged DC from reprinting this issue as part of their Millennium Edition reprint series, despite its historic significance. As there never was an Oswald newspaper strip, these are not reprints. They also feature the black furred version of Oswald, not the then current white-furred version.
