As for Mortimer, he was one of the highlights of the Mouseworks cartoons, not sure if the team creating the current series will realise his potential?

I wonder what the special Snow White inspired episode will be like. Wonder if it'll be Mickey characters cast in a Snow White style story, or if Mickey won't appear and the actual Snow White characters will be adapted to the style of the new shorts?


If they do a gross gag with Dopey, I'm out.

That freeze-frame of Mickey licking Bashful says it all. It seems the team behind these shorts have abandoned all interest in keeping Mickey and co true to character. Now the characters are just shrill, stupid, violent and gross for no reason.

Having sat through the whole cartoon, I'm afraid to say that, outside of various Disney references (some harder to find than others), you're not missing much. The dwarves (and Goofy) quickly devolve into savages, of course, and most of the cartoon seems more focused on an urban car chase between Mickey and Pete (though, in reference to the climax of the original Snow White, towards the end it takes place in a thunderstorm).

And I know I've seen the whole "birds carry the main character in the sky" thing somewhere....

I knew they would overdo these things. I'm starting to think that even adapting the foreign Disney comic story, "Mickey's Inferno" almost seems like a better option (although, I doubt that it would ever happen).

Now I sit patiently for an announcement that one of the shorts for S3 stars Roger Rabbit and Bonkers D. Bobcat. ;)

I'm waiting for when they will bring back Mickey's second rival Mortimer Mouse. He hasn't bin messing with Mickey since House of Mouse and Mickey Mouse Works.


He was also in Mickey Mouse Clubhouse for one or two (more?) episodes.

Hmm, I dunno. I thought the old ones had plenty of the above in them too. They definitely weren't always wholesome, were often violent, even racist. I like the old and the new. I don't see the new ones as any worse than the old.

Yes, but the classic shorts at least had (or strove for) professional artistic standards, not to mention limits on where certain gags and scenarios would go. (The racism, of course, reflected society at the time.) Even the more aggressive stuff (especially in the earlier cartoons, with Mickey using animals as instruments or stepping all over Minnie with his giant feet) was at least executed well enough that the audience wouldn't cringe.

^For me, the key part of my first quote is "for no reason". A lot of these new shorts distort the characters' personalities in order to do a certain gag or story. Why on earth would Mickey ever be stupid enough for him to think that Minnie is telling him to lick a dwarf? The only reason is so that we can then see him do it (as graphically and suggestively as Disney can get away with) and the audience gets a laugh out of something so weird happening.

In the Gottfredson strips, Goofy can often be clueless and irritating to his friends, but he'd never eat Minnie. Similarly Mickey wouldn't find dining inside Goofy's to be a pleasant, romantic (or even possible) idea. Yet it can happen in these shorts where doing something gross for the sake of comedy is preferable to working out stories and jokes that stem from these iconic characters' personalities.

Yes, I understand that much of the 'fun' of these shorts is derived from showing Mickey and co doing gross things we never expected to see in an official Disney cartoon. However, I believe that the characters are rich enough to star in all sorts of entertaining, funny cartoons which can and should get a little dark and edgy sometimes, but also stay true to their personalities.

Let's hope nothing is too soon when it comes to a hurricane-themed cartoon. First Arthur now this?

This series has settled into a groove which isn't for me (the last episode I really enjoyed was Mumbai Madness) so I was gonna quit watching these, but I had to find out what the offending joke was. I actually thought the gag was quite funny (I read that a joke along similar lines was considered for the video feature, The Three Musketeers), but as a whole I didn't like the cartoon. Plenty of people are enjoying these, so I think I'll leave them to it and just stop watching and complaining!
