This just in from Jim Korkis:

[TRUMP magazine from January 1957 was published by Hugh "Playboy" Hefner in an attempt to do a slick humor magazine like MAD with Harvey Kurtzman as editor. In the first issue, famed comic artist Wally Wood did a parody of what a Walt Disney animated feature of Hansel and Gretel would look like. To make it even more realistic, Wood painted the artwork on animation cels. Here is a link to that three page story.]

"Hansel and Gretel" was in development as a live-action musical in the early 1960s. Richard M and Robert B Sherman wrote several songs (one of which, "Chin Up" found its way into "Charlotte's Web" years later), A.J. Carothers ("The Happiest Millionaire") worked on the screenplay.
