Walt Disney’s Looney Arts Club Band

valkemaBeatlesLooney009

Seems that dutch people are always getting cool Disney stuff. ALWAYS.

In this case we’re talking about one of the neatest parodies of the utterly famous “Sargent Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” album cover. But instead of The Beatles we have Donald, Goofy, Mickey and Horace Horsecollar. And instead of The Beatles, they’re called “The Duckles”. And still looks trippy, man.

This illustration was drawn in 2009 by comic illustrator Gerben Valkema, for a dutch Disney publication (Disney Comics are still popular in the Netherlands, and they have a huge cult following towards Donald Duck and the whole “Duckverse”). Of course Roger and Jessica Rabbit are featured –in first row!!

If you wonder about the colored version, here it is!

By the way, thanks to my co-blogger Alex for the heads-up!

Seems a bit odd Disney would use "Looney", a word mostly associated with the characters of their rivaling company, Warner Bros.

It was the choice of the illustrator to use that word. Besides, "Looney" isn't copyrighted by Warner Bros. since you can't actually register a commonly used word into copyright.

I wonder even more about whatever happened to Scrooge? Or Gyro?
