Over the years, Walt Disney has licensed the production of many valentines. The 1930s saw many different sets produced in celebration of their animated features.

Valentine and Sons created a set of mechanical cards with Mickey and Minnie Mouse in 1938. They may be the company who created the other sets of Disney character mechanical cards from the 1930s.
The Hall Brothers (who later became Hallmark) made a set of fold-over cards featuring Mickey and others. This set is quite difficult to come by.
