Walsh scripted the Mickey Mouse daily comic strip drawn by Floyd Gottfredson from 1944 until 1964. He found it an enjoyable collaboration and only his heavy workload finally forced him to give it up. One of the continuities he wrote before the strip became gag-a-day was reprinted in Gladstone Comic Album No. 17 (1989) as Mickey Mouse and the World of Tomorrow.
