Prod. 2242 - Mr. Mouse Takes a Trip
Released 10 days before Fantasia, on 11/01/40, this 2nd draft dated 5/16/40.
I suppose by now we all have seen the clip of Walt as Mickey and Billy Bletcher as Pete. It was available on the Disney treasures DVD: Mickey Mouse in Living Color Vol.2. Someone uploaded it to YouTube.
Mr. Mouse Takes a Trip isn't the best of Disney's output, not by a long shot, but it sure put Pomona on the map for me! A great place for antiquing! The short itself is abundantly available on YouTube.
In the draft we meet Andy Engman, Dick Lundy, Chic Otterstrom, Ken Muse, Ed Love, Marvin Woodward, Claude Smith and Nick Nichols.
Miffy is all finished, folks! Personally I think it is great, but I would have to, wouldn't I? The premiere is in Holland in January. Let's hope the audience likes it as much as I do!
