A 'despicable, detestable, deplorable desecration of Walt Disney's early works'--and that might be why I enjoyed it so much!
One reviewer for this show clearly hated it. They describe it as 'despicable, detestable, deplorable desecration of Walt Disney's early works'. I can certainly understand WHY they felt that way, as the animation style is NOTHING like the classic Disney characters and it seems pretty cheap at first. And, I can certainly understand WHY they felt this way because the characters were doing many things that would make Walt spin in his grave like a rotisserie. Imagine having episodes with a zombie Goofy, Mickey and Donald trying to hide their nudity, dogs urinating, bites being bitten off Mickey's ear and a lot of very un-Disney-like violence!! It IS shocking and I could see how a purist would blanch at such things. However, I am NOT a Disney purist. Sure, I love the old cartoons but will quickly admit that Mickey's old cartoons were awfully sanitized--a bit too sanitized if you ask me. Rarely did Mickey have any sort of edge--that was left to Donald and, sometimes, Goofy. But here, Mickey is a rather impish character--more like you'd see in the very, very early Mickey cartoons and not the sweet and 100% wholesome guy you'd see in the 1930s to today! While the art style takes some getting used to, I can look past the cheap look. More importantly, as I sat and watched these cartoons during a recent Disney cruise (where they pipe them into the rooms), I found myself laughing louder than I ever have before with a cartoon. Imagine blending a bit of "Ren & Stimpy" with Mickey--that is what you'll find in "Mickey Mouse" (2013). I love them and want more!
