In The Wild

One of my favorite gag panels. It ran over ten years =, but it is hard to find a good run.

This is quite the oddity - though it is credited to Disney, the strip has no established Disney characters (from cartoons, movies, TV or comics), nor does it promote any other Disney production.
Anyone know who the actual artist(s) were?

Here's what Comic Strip Fan writes:

Merry Menagerie, by Bob Grant

Strip run: 1947 - 1962

Merry Menagerie by Walt Disney was run as a daily in newspapers and was distributed by King Features Syndicate. It was drawn by Bob Grant, one of the classic Disney artists, who mainly worked on Disney comics for the daily press. From 1939 to 1940 he drew the Pluto Sunday page. He later took on the Little Hiawatha Sunday comic. From 1947 to 1962, he drew the Merry Menagerie cartoon series.

Well, that explains why I find Little Hiawatha so great as well.
