I need to find the tribute that appeared in the stars and stripes military newspaper to Walt Disney the day after he died. It was a full page ad on the back of the paper. we are looking to see if it was Donald Duck or Mickey Mouse who appeared with a tear in his eye. Bet resting on this so we need to see the actual tribute from that ad.

vic4444-ga, I hope you bet on Mickey! After all, who else could it really be??? Mickey Mouse was Disney's icon, and even served as a codeword during D-Day. The drawing you asked about appeared in the Stars and Strips of December 18, 1966, a few days after Disney's death. It was not a full page ad, however. Instead, the drawing appeared in the popular "On The Town" column of the day. You can see a relevant excerpt from the column at this link: http://h1.ripway.com/dsarokin/mickeywithtear.rtf I trust that fully answers your question, but if there's anything else I can do for you on this, let me know.
