Hello from the Gutter: Wally Wood’s ‘Disneyland Orgy’

Wally Wood’s “Disneyland Orgy” poster, from the pages of The Realist, Paul Krassner’s famed underground magazine:

His Disneyland Memorial Orgy poster, illustrated by Wally Wood, was a highlight of the magazine, so successful that Krassner printed it as a poster that was widely pirated. The poster was recently upgraded by Krassner into a new, digitally-colored version. Other cartoonists featured in The Realist included Howard Shoemaker, Dick Guindon, Mort Gerberg, Bhob Stewart and Lou Myers.

According to this, Wood didn’t admit to drawing the poster until years later. Chances are, even for an iconoclast like Wood, tarnishing the image of The Mouse would have been career suicide, especially in the halcyon days of Walt Disney and company.
