Ethan Hulbert in a Dewey Duck mask as an adult and as a child.

The Dewey Mask: Now vs. Then

We found the mask in a tote full of old papers, and I put it on just as a joke before intending to throw it away.

But when we found the old photograph on the right just a few minutes later, we decided to keep it after all. Maybe I’ll wear it again in another 30 years.

Dewey is one of Donald Duck’s nephews, by the way – Huey, Dewey, and Louie. But where this mask originally came from, who knows? A McDonald’s happy meal, or maybe the back of a cereal box?
