Grumpy on the Cover of Stage Magazine, 1938

By Nick

I thought I’d start a new series, featuring stuff hanging up around our house, and I thought I’d kick it off with one of my oldest pieces. “Stage”, the “Magazine of After Dark Entertainment”, from February, 1938.

Back in the early 90s, not long after I developed my Disney mania, I came across this magazine at an antique shop.
I remember paying a price that at that time was an absolutely crazy amount for me to spend on a magazine, $60! Original cover price: $.35! But I love Grumpy, so….
And having it framed was even pricier, which is why it hangs in a very prime location in our living room.

Now, I'd love to be able to share the interior, but I don't want to wreck that expensive frame job. Imagine my surprise when I was checking out my friend Robert's blog Filmic Light-Snow White Archive, and found a great article with interior photos! Please check out that post here, and thank you Robert!


  1. I love reading stuff like this - even better that you have it hanging in your living room!

  2. Thanks for the link Nick! The drawings are definitely some unique and nice-looking artwork.

  3. What a great cover. And a terrific way to archive the magazine, keep in safe inside that frame.
