Disney/Pixar Animated Short Reviews: #19 New York Weenie 2013 6 out of 10

New York Weenie  2013   6 out of 10

New York Weenie  is the latest in the new stylized  Mickey Mouse  cartoons.  It stars Mickey Mouse  and Minnie Mouse taking a stroll through the park in New York when Minnie gets hungry and Mickey buys her a hot dog.  Well the hot dog escapes and Mickey ends up chasing it through the park through a series of silly adventures.  It was a decent Mickey cartoon--but it was just a little odd and had some Ren and Stimpy type moments that just didn't feel like a Mickey cartoon.  Especially the ending where Mickey finally rescues the hot dog for Minnie and it is so gross that there is no way she would  want it.  There is a close up of the hot dog that is straight out of Ren and Stimpy.   I  kept wondering throughout the cartoon whether Mickey and Minnie had ever heard of the 5 second rule when you drop your food?  This hot dog was way beyond the 5 second rule and was covered in the dirt like a cupcake at a children's birthday party in the park.

The cartoon can currently be found airing on the Disney Channel and Disney Online
