Screen shot 2013-03-12 at 12.56.09 PM

Check out this FANTASTIC new Mickey Mouse cartoon by Disney. I’ve been hearing about these for a few years now and really excited to see the results!I would argue that these look better than the originals. Apparently they are doing a total of nineteen new Mickey Mouse films!

Here’s an old Mickey commercial from 1955 which while fuzzy comes close.

For those out of the US you can see it here.

  1. Nice, fast and witty. Holds true enough to the good conventions of these cartoons. There are a few instances fg and bg are conflicted; the backgrounds could be toned down to appreciate the action, like those old toons used to do. Lovely, though.
    Also nice to see that cartoon is not such a dirty word anymore. It had awful connotations for years when many folks would sniff at anything that wasn’t a grand feature; a Disney ‘Classic Masterpiece’ (call them Classterpieces to save time).

  2. I really enjoyed it as well! It was slick to be sure but nicely done at the same time. I especially enjoyed the camera work during Mickey’s driving on the scooter. Very well done! the bgs didn’t bother me so much, it kind of felt to me like I was watching a moving comic book which I loved.

    • They’re right in style with the characters and tone of the short (bgs). I just found a few shots were the punch of the animation was lost over busy areas; could have used stronger bg/fg contrast. Happy that there no blur on any elements, all graphic, uses strobing to a great effect. Like a cartoon, I tell ya!
