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
