    Pink Grin The "Newish" Mickey Mouse animated shorts

    Didn't see this on the front page of the Lounge so I figure I can get away with making a thread about this. While wandering around YouTube I saw a new one got uploaded and just had to talk about this. So has anyone been watching these? Cause if you haven't you need to cause they are totally super special awesome!

    I am simply amazed that after so many years, someone over at Disney finally recaptured what made Mickey Mouse such an amazing character and why Disney is such a big deal.

    These are some of my favorites:

    I find these difficult to watch because of the animation style. Hurts my eyes after a while. Guess I'm too old to keep up with you kids and your fancy Flash animations.

    That "Get a Horse" short in front of Frozen was fantastic, though.

    tbh, it tries too hard to be like Spongebob or something, and not like Mickey.

    The shorts are indeed nice...even if as a person outside of the US I had to resort to some...other methods of watching them. :P

    I do like how they depict Mickey in a more mischievous manner similar to his portrayal in the (in)famous Runaway Brain short which reminds me of the very old shorts were Mickey was hardly a do-gooder (until Donald later inherited many of those traits). The animation style is also quite elastic, reminiscent of the way Ub Iwerks and even Walt himself used to animate Mickey.

    These new shorts may not end up becoming as timeless as the black&white Mickey shorts, but they're a commendable effort and a nice way of keeping the Mouse active.

    And yes... "Get a Horse" is quite interesting on a technical level (that's what you get when one of Disney's current master animators is on the helm!) and a nice homage to the old shorts while giving the formula a modern spin. And it was so nice to hear Walt's voice one more time as Mickey.
    How I met your mother, Donald Duck's parents style! Love at first temper tantrum!

    I only managed to see the yodeling one because YouTube hated Poland.


    It was so glorious

    The art style kind of remind me of the old black and white Mickey Mouse, especially in the third video.
