May the Mouse Be With You: Star Wars Themed Mickey Mouse Ears

May The Force Be With You

You can use these Star Wars Mickey Mouse ears made by Etsy seller And The Thread Goes On to prepare for a Disney Star Wars Film, or to just walk around Walt Disney World. Disney already sells some Star Wars themed ears, like the R2D2 pair that you can buy at the parks, but these designs let the wearer be the Jedi, Sith Lord, Wookiee, Bounty Hunter, or Princess of their choosing, as well as the iconic Disney mouse. Shop owner Jessica Danker has even made some of these hats based on buyer requests.

The Mouse Returns, in New Disney Short Croissant de Triomphe

Our Adorable Past


Croissant de Triomphe on Disney Video Disney has struggled in the past couple of decades with the fact that its most iconic characters have become not much more than that: visual iconography that says "Disney" and not much else. While Mickey and the gang are still inextricably linked with the brand, they certainly haven't been doing much lately. Warner Bros. has been having a parallel problem with the Looney Tunes, but I can at least remember a time when classic Bugs Bunny cartoons were readily available on basic cable during my lifetime (to say nothing of Tiny Tunes or Space Jam whichwasawesomeshutup). Disney's latest attempt to dig out of this hole? A series of shorts featuring the gang, spanning the globe. The writing on this one probably won't surprise you, but it's something pretty to look at. Also I'm a sucker for creative use of cognates and loan words. (via /Film.)

Disney World to Issue Identification Bracelets, Park Moves One Step Closer to Police State

Don't give us that look, you knew as well as we did that the Walt Disney Company would eventually cut its fang-like teeth on insidious global takeover. This spring, Disney World will feel more like an internment camp than a destination for exorbitant family entertainment when the park initiates the MyMagic+ vacation management system and MagicBand identification bracelets. These bracelets, if participating visitors are so inclined, will be encoded with a wealth of information including the individual's name, credit card information, and other tidbits such as birthdays. Disney believes that this new system will mean faster purchase transactions and less time spent waiting in line to get on rides, but it's natural if some people would rather not have corporate goons sifting through private information for their own ends. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the police state as envisioned by Mickey Mouse!

The Shindig: The Mickey Mouse Short Banned in America Because of a Nude Cow Reading Erotica

For A More Civilized Age

Everyone has heard about the pervy things that Disney animators have slipped into their movies, like the word "sex" in The Lion King, or the erection in The Little Mermaid. But little inside "jokes" like this go way back to the earliest days of Disney when Walt Disney was producing Mickey Mouse shorts. One such joke got one short, "The Shindig," banned in America in 1930 because an allegedly naked Clarabelle Cow was reading Elinor Glyn's Three Weeks, an erotic novel from 1907. Oh, those saucy Disney animators!

Mickey Mouse Made to Look His Age

Mickey Mouse debuted in November of 1928, in the iconic Steamboat Willie, which makes him 83 years old today. As with most cartoons that aren't shown aging or even progressing through time during their lives (The Simpsons certainly comes to mind), Mickey hasn't aged a single day. Luckily for those who ever wondered what the mouseman would look like if he ever did age, using skills honed from a mask making class, artist Darick Maasen has created a vision of what Mickey would look like today, assuming micemen live on the same age lifecycle as humans.
