In 1952, the Dutch Donald Duck weekly made its first appearance. The magazine contained only American stories in the early years, although the covers were already drawn by Dutch artist Endre Lukacs from 1953. The first Dutch stories appeared in the mid-1960s. These were stories with secondary characters like 'Hiawatha' and the 'Big Bad Wolf', that were written and drawn at the Toonder studios. Publisher De Geïllustreerde Pers took on its own story production in 1969, although the quality was very bad at first. With the arrival of art director Daan Jippes in 1973, the quality increased. De Geïllustreerde Pers became Oberon and later VNU/Sanoma and several Dutch artists had their turn drawing Disney stories.
