The Postal Service unveiled a set of stamp designs Tuesday featuring Disney characters. Also included are Donald Duck, Jiminy Cricket, Simba and Pinocchio. The 37-cent self-adhesive stamps will be issued next summer. "The new postage stamps are a tremendous testament to the lasting popularity of Mickey Mouse and other beloved Disney characters," said Mary Beech of Disney Consumer Products.

The characters are on a four-stamp set, the first of three annual sets planned featuring Disney characters. Previously the post office issued a series of stamps featuring cartoon characters from Warner Brothers.
