Walt Disney's Treasury of Classic Tales is an American Sunday comic strip, which ran in newspapers[1] from 13 July 1952 until 15 February 1987. It was distributed by King Features Syndicate. [2] Each story adapted a different Disney film, such as Darby O'Gill and the Little People, Peter Pan, or Davy Crockett. It was run in relatively few papers with 58 in 1957[3] and 55 in 1966[4] and was principally a vehicle for promoting new and re-released Disney films.[5]

Some of the stories created toward the end of the strip's run in the 1980s were original stories featuring characters from different Disney animated movies. Most stories ran for 13 weeks. A total of 129 stories were created between 1952 and 1987.

In 2016 IDW Publishing and their imprint The Library of American Comics (LOAC) began to collect all the Treasury of Classic Tales titles in their hardcover series Walt Disney's Treasury of Classic Tales, named after the original.[6]
