Cartoon Brew reader Chris Olson, who sent in the fantastic ‘making of’ Pinocchio article a few weeks back, recently sent over a couple other rare articles from his personal collection. Both pieces were published in the WWII-era magazine Flying and Popular Avaiation.

The article “Insignia Industry” was published in the April 1942 issue, and the article titled “Walt Disney’s Animated War” was published in the March 1945 issue. (Relatedly, if anybody is curious to see more of the Disney character insignia, there was a good book published in the early-90s (now out-of-print) called DISNEY DONS DOGTAGS which reprinted hundreds of the insignia in color.)
