What are my thoughts on these, their okay. Just okay. Not good, but not bad. Just okay.
There are various pros and cons to this and I will list just the major ones.
The pros are that it keeps the feel of the original cartoons back in the 20’s. The comedy is more of a slapstick take and gives back the personality of Mickey Mouse that he used to have.
Mickey was still nice and a good friend, but yet he was edgy, and at times, a bit of a jerk. I’m glad they brought back the Mickey we know and love. Now that Mickey’s back, how about Oswald Disney?
My main problem of this short is the fact that it seems a bit too cheesy. Get it? He’s a mouse. Mice like cheese. Never mind.
Anyways, the jokes can be a bit bland at times and reminds me a bit of the newer Spongebob episodes. Which makes perfect sense because the producer also produced Spongebob.
As in the case of Spongebob, the jokes were too childish and they never usually fit the character telling the joke. We know Spongebob is supposed to be dumb, but not as dumb as the jokes portray him to be. He is supposed to be dumb like he was a child who was still learning.
This goes the same for these cartoons. we know Mickey is supposed to be goofy. But we shouldn’t go so over the top he goes out of character.
I may be just nit picking here. The jokes in the old 20’s version were just as cheesy and overused as these ones. And some of the jokes here actually made me laugh. So I guess this ones not a big problem.
So in conclusion, these new shorts aren’t the biggest thing a Disney fan has been waiting for. But people new to Mickey Mouse would like it. It brings back the Mickey we remember. But would I see the other shorts? Actually, yes. The short isn’t that bad. I would like to watch it many times.
But if you really want nostalgic Mickey Mouse, how about we wait until we “Get a Horse”.
