Halloween is coming! Trick or Treat is just What You Need!

Trick or Treat

Today in the spirit of embracing the approaching Halloween festivities. We will look at Trick or Treat, a sculpture which captures the fun and flair of Halloween, and a 2004 retired set by Disney. In 1952, Walt Disney released a Donald Duck cartoon short entitled Trick or Treat that featured the miserable Donald playing tricks on his lovable little nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, rather than providing them with Halloween treats . Disheartened, the boys befriend the wacky Witch Hazel and her faithful broom, Beelzebub, and together they teach “Unca” Donald a Halloween lesson he’ll never forget.

These figures are created by noted Walt Disney Classics Collection Sculptor Chris Peterson. A childhood prodigy who became familiar with Disney early on. His aunt worked as Disney’s first lay-out artist during the creation of the Jungle Book. She would send him the concept art, which he would study, copy, and return to her. This scene, artfully created by the now adult and masterful Chris Peterson, features: Huey, Dewey and Louie in their Halloween costumes – a devil, a spook, a witch— and the comical Witch Hazel. The scene is made all the more magical with an impressive, finely detailed resin base featuring Witch Hazel’s bubbling cauldron, a garbage can and a rickety old fence.
