    It’s really cool that Disney gives all of their employees a Christmas card. I’ve worked for other studios who produce wonderful Holiday cards and never give one to any of the employees.

  • I really like the one from LIFE.

  • Well I got Cartoon Modern for Christmas, so I’m pretty happy!

    Was Disney trying to go cubist with the Mickey card?
