Goofy Stars in The Flying Trunk
Issued in 1987, this fun Grenada souvenir sheet was issued to commemorate Hafnia '87, the international stamp show held in Denmark. To mark the occasion, Grenada issued a series of stamps featuring Disney characters acting out scenes from the works of Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. This neat sheet pictures Goofy in The Flying Trunk, a fairy tale first published in 1839. The story follows a young man who climbs into an enchanted trunk and travels to Turkey where he meets a sultan's daughter. The story has been compared to "The Arabian Nights" stories that Anderson read and enjoyed as a child.
