Silver Age Christmas - "Christmas Parade"

All December 2014, we will be celebrating a Silver Age Christmas, with great Silver Age comics about Christmas. For the sake of this endeavor, "Silver Age" will be defined as 1956-1970 (the annoying part about that is that 1951-1955 sort of fall into no man's land, as it is not yet Silver Age but also seems to be a bit late for Golden Age).

We continue with 1962's Walt Disney's Christmas Parade #1...

The story in question is typically referred to as "Christmas Parade," but I tend to believe that it was actually without a title and it was just noting that the COMIC ITSELF was named "Christmas Parade." Anyhow, it was drawn by the great Tony Strobl, who is best known as "The awesome Duck Artist who happened to be working at the same time as Carl Barks and is thus never given as much credit as he desrves for the 'crime' of not being Carl Barks."

The concept of the story is that Donald and his nephews are trying to figure out a present for Uncle Scrooge. Donald eventually comes up with an idea - get Scrooge to realize that GIVING is the best thing for Scrooge's happiness. Donald even brings in a mental health expert to convince Scrooge. But when Scrooge IS convinced, well, things don't go according to plan...

This continues for a while until Scrooge has just about had it with the concept...

Cool ending.
