Indexer Notes

While Carl Buettner drew most of the covers for this series in their entirety, the head of Mickey Mouse in this cover illustration is clearly that of Paul Murry, the American comic book artist most closely identified with the character 1950-1984.

The remainder of the cover, perhaps including Mickey’s body – and certainly the backgrounds, are Buettner’s. Mickey’s head is in an ever-so-slightly larger proportion to the body, also indicating the work of two separate artists.

Synopsis
When taking shelter from a thunder and lightning storm, Mickey and Goofy find an ages-old deed to a nearby farm (lettered in “old-time” calligraphy), which says the one-time owner is walking away from the property due to becoming “wearied” by a “magic mountain”. Taking charge of their new windfall, the pair find the farm is situated on land made up of a mountain that seems to rise-up and fall-back-flat at will. To make matters worse, when Mickey and Goofy plant corn on the farmland, the mountain disgorges vast amounts of popcorn. Too much popcorn turns out to be not such a good thing.
