Adolf Mickey

Mickey as Hitler is so banal. But Mickey as Hitler drawn by one of the lead cartoonists of the defunct youth magazine « Pif Gadget », owned by the French Communist Party, it’s way better. Of course this cartoonist went to work for Disney later on in his career…

Thanks to Serge Rosenzweig, former « Pif Gadget » deputy editor, for his wonderful personal archives.

« Pif Gadget » was the first magazine to come with a gimmick every week. Due to its Communist affiliation, it was widely read on the other side of the Iron Curtain.

My film, « Pif, behind the gimmick » is currently in post-production. It will be aired in January on the European cultural channel Arte, during the Angoulême International Comic Book Festival.
