Hit me up at Heroes Con.
One thing there has never been much of a shortage of in this topsy-turvy world is Disney crap. Sure, like, you could go to any store anywhere and be guaranteed to find something with Mickey Mouse or the Little Mermaid emblazoned on it. However, for the hard-core collector like myself, you gotta gotta dig deeper for the more esoteric character’s paraphernalia, and digging deep is what I did. In other words, I need to get off the goddamned Disney Store’s emailing list.
Who says Disney cartoons can’t be funny? Well, usually me, but this is a rare exception. From what I’ve heard, Disney kept 1995’s Runaway Brain out of circulation because of its use of an “evil Mickey” and the comedic death of the professor.
Who knows, though. Only Satan, I suppose.
Hahahaha! Greetings boils and ghouls! It’s the most wonderfully godless and depraved time of the year! You know what that means, it’s time to curl up with a infernal black cat and a bowl of unsanctified candy corn, because it’s time for 2012’s clump of creepy cartoons brought to you by your favorite scoundrels in Lattaland.
The first cartoon on the chopping block is from the carefree year of 1929 and is our shuttersome hero Mickey Mouse’s 14th outing. I’d sell my soul to the dark one to animate like Ub Iwerks. You hear me, Satan?
Disney UDF Series 02 – Mickey Mouse – Plane Crazy
Y’know, after seeing the mouse head representing a big, evil corporation all of our lives, it’s easy to lose sight of Mickey Mouse’s appeal. I have been reading those Fantagraphics Floyd Gotterson reprints and seeing that stuff makes you totally get why Mickey took depression era America by a 4-finger storm.
