Saint Lucia Postage stamps - Disney MoonwalkThe recent space shuttle mission reminded me of this set of stamps, although I waited till the crew got home safely before posting this! Issued by Saint Lucia in 1979 - The International Year of the Child - the set of six stamps was issued on the 10th Anniversary of the Moonwalk and features several popular Walt Disney characters as astronauts.

Donald Duck appears on both the 1 and 10 cent stamps;

Goofy graces both the 3 and 4 cent stamps;

Minnie Mouse is featured on the 2 cent stamp;

and Pluto buries a bone amongst the craters on the moon on the 5 cent stamp.

Mickey Mouse is, mysteriously, lost in space and nowhere to be seen! (Actually, he sits aboard a rocket on the 1/2 cent stamp which is sadly missing from my collection...)
