Mickey’s and Donald’s Race To Treasure Island

Surrounding this map of the United States, produced in collaboration with the Standard Oil Company of California, is a set of images clipped from issues of Travel Tykes Weekly, showing Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck engaging in activities as they race across the continent to the Golden Gate International Exposition in California. On the back, Standard Oil offered instructions on how to acquire the free magazine and care for the map, while Disney offered an illustrated story told in rhyme, Mickey, Donald & Nephews Adventures at the Fair.
