| One of the Best Mickey Shorts Ever
As the second Mickey in Color DVD collection shows, after the release of the Brave Little Tailor Mickey's screen career was on a steady slide into the toilet. Outside of his feature appearances Mickey's films were dull. It wasn't until the 1980's with Mickey's Christmas Carol and The Prince and the Pauper that the animators knew what to do with the Disney symbol.

In 1995 they released this gem and it simply is one of the best Disney shorts ever produced. Mickey in need of money to buy a gift for Minnie gets mixed up with a mad scientist and mayhem that previously was only witnessed in Warner cartoons occurs. Its every horror movie cliche turned on its head.

What can I say? This is funny funny stuff, that Disney, attached to some live action box office dog, so odds are you've never seen it, which is a shame because its so good that it almost single handedly makes the Price of the Mickey Mouse in Color Volume Two DVD set worth buying.

Go track it down. Its only seven minutes long so you'll be able to watch it three or four times in a row with out feeling like you've wasted too much time.

This is a true Disney classic.
