Disney Cartoon #36: "Mickey And The Firefighter" (1993/2002)
by Albert Gutierrez
As tomorrow marks the 10th Anniversary of 9/11, Saturday Matinee will take a brief break from covering cartoons and instead offers this singular image in tribute and memorium of the bravery found, the lives lost, and the strength gained from that unforgettable day.
This image was designed by Charles Boyer, and features then-rookie Dave Baker as the firefighter. It was first used in a 1993 poster to honor the Southern California firefighters that bravely fought the wildfires that ravaged the state. In June 2002, this iconic image would be re-issued once again, this time in tribute to the New York firefighters' bravery and rescue of thousands in the 9/11 attacks.
