Just found this morning on ebay this politically very incorrect postcard produced in Belgium in 1935 (non-authorized by Disney) and showing Mickey during his visit to the Belgian Congo (currently known as Democratic Republic of Congo).

Reminds me of some of the early British Inter-Art Company postcards. In one the Mickey mice have been drinking and the caption reads, "Three blind mice." In another a Minnie Mouse look-a-like can be seen in the background pushing a buggy and is surrounded by small mice. Mickey is in the foreground waving his hand and saying, "I'm not the marrying type." I'll try and get some scans off to you in the next couple of days of the ones I own.
