MIckey Mouse Thanksgiving Postcard from Sunoco

Here we have Mickey in a pilgrim's hat, hunting a turkey. I'm fairly certain this is not from 1939, as the Mickey Standard Oil advertising cartoon is from 1939, unless Sunoco was a subsidiary, which I don't think it was. Happy Thanksgiving anyway.


  1. Your right. The Sun Oil Company of Philadelphia was pretty much the only major oil company John D. Rockefeller didn't own at the turn of the century. Sunoco's always been separate from the Standard Oil group, which in itself was split into different fiefdoms in 1911 (albeit it Standard of Ohio and Standard of Indiana are now back together as part of BP, and Standard of New Jersey and Standard of New York are now ExxonMobil).
