The banning of a Mickey Mouse cartoon is the last thing one would expect, but in 1932 it happened. The cartoon showed a cow in a pasture reading a book that was considered obscene. The book was Elinor Glyn’s Three Weeks, which told the story of a young Englishman’s affair with a Russian queen. The book had been banned in Boston in 1908 and was considered vulgar and boring by moralists and critics alike. It is a mystery how the book came to be put in a Walt Disney cartoon.
