Mickey's House and Meet Mickey

January 1993

Mickey Mouse's house is, appropriately, the largest in Toon Town. It includes not only the house proper, but also a small (bizarrely indoor) garden, and "Mickey's Movie Barn" in which Mickey films cartoons.

Mickey's TVThe main house is of average size for a toon dwelling. Guests are able to walk through unsupervised, sit on Mickey's furniture, watch his TV, and look at the memorabilia on his shelves. It is a telling sign of the public's respect for Mickey that everything in his house that was not nailed down has already been stolen. Some of the memorabilia visible to sharp-eyed visitors includes a potato from Steamboat Willie, Pete's peg leg (from before he had the bionic one attached), a script for an as-yet-unfilmed Mickey short based on Upton Sinclair's The Jungle, Walt Disney's first mustache, Captain Nemo's organ from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and the mounted head of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. There is not, as rumored, a drawer filled with Minnie's underwear, and there is no longer a video tape of Shrek in the trash can.

Behind the house is Mickey's Movie Barn, which is both a warehouse for props and a working cartoon studio. The prop warehouse contains easily recognizable props from famous Mickey films, including The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Plane Crazy, The Clock Cleaners, and Keeping Your Juice: a Mosquito Netting Primer (a WWII training film). There's even the makeup prosthesis Mickey wore for Marty. You can also find more obscure items such as the missing question mark from the title of Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

The filming portion of Mickey's Movie Barn is a little more problematic. We visited dozens of times, and each time Mickey was filming either The Band Concert, Steamboat Willie, or The Sorcerer's Apprentice (which he seems to think is a standalone film). What's up with this? Why is Mickey in a rut of remaking his old classics? Why is he filming Willie in black and white again? Can he really get anything done with people coming in all the time to shake his hand and take pictures? We, unfortunately, don't have answers to any of these questions.

Trivia: Although Mickey lives in Toontown, he keeps his money in the Cayman Islands.
