Saturday morning cartoons: Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck in “No Service”

A brand new Mickey and Donald short from Disney. I’m loving the return to simple, short films with a brand new style. I’m pretty sure this is only watchable in the US, sorry.

Rediscovered short film of the day: “Mickey Mouse Goes to Vietnam” by Lee Savage and Milton Glaser

Created in 1968, this is not an official Disney short, but it was created by Savage and Glaser as an underground anti-war film. They creators were never sued by Disney, though there was talk of legal action. Instead, the film just kind of disappeared until it recently showed back up on YouTube.


Saturday morning cartoons: Mickey Mouse in “Croissant de Triumphe”

A new Disney short starring old style Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, etc created by the creator of Dexter’s Laboratory. I want to see so much more of this.

These are the earliest known sketches of Mickey Mouse

You’re looking at the earliest known drawings of Mickey Mouse, cir. 1928, by Mickey Mouse co-creator Ub Iwerks. You’ll note that even though the face changed, Disney and Iwerks knew from the very beginning that Mickey’s iconic circular ears would pretty much always stay in the same place on his head, no matter what he was doing.


Saturday morning cartoons: “The Nifty Nineties”

A great little Disney short from 1941 starring Mickey and Minnie about the “Nifty Nineties”, as in the 1890s, not 1990s. Obviously.

IHC After Dark: Mickey has fallen on hard times

Yes, I know this is older than dirt, but god dammit it makes me laugh every time I see it.

Mickey Mouse at Disney World now has a creepy animatronic head

Looks like at Disney parks, they’re experimenting with robotic animatronic heads instead of the old static, mute heads that you know and love. I guess the effect is sort of cool, but at the same time, it makes me wish that Mickey would go back to not saying anything. I guess the kids like it or something, but kids are fucking stupid.


New Epic Mickey trailer tells the story of Oswald the Rabbit

I don’t know if I’ve explained before, but when I was a kid, I was a huge Disney nut. I really wanted to be a Disney animator (the best animation gig in town at the time) and I learned everything about it, and so I can’t even begin to explain the joy I felt seeing this video explaining the history of Oswald the Rabbit and his return to the Disney family after nearly 100 years of being lost in trademark disputes.

I also love that they’ve made him like Mickey’s older brother, pissed that Mickey was the one that became world famous when it was Oswald who was the star first.
