Tidbit: Disney Mickey Mouse Gas Mask

January 6, 1942, Sun Rubber Company introduced a protective Mickey Mouse gas mask for children.
December 6, 1941, the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor creating fears of further attacks on the United States.

A critical need existed to protect the civilian population. The design of the Mickey Mouse Gas Mask was presented to Major General William N. Porter, Chief of the Chemical Warfare Service.

Sun Rubber Company went on to produce over a 1,000 of the Mickey Mouse gas masks. The Army-Navy award them an “E” for excellence rating.
