Disney/Pixar Animated Short Reviews: #42 O Futebol Classico 2014 6 out of 10

O Futebol Classico  2014  6 out of 10

This recent Mickey Mouse cartoon finds Mickey Mouse at the World Cup in a seat with no view.  The premise of Mickey trying to get a good seat after a huge guy with giant hair sits in front of him was one of the weaker premises of  some of the recent cartoons, but this episode was an obvious choice with the World Cup sweeping the world at the moment.  I thought it was a missed opportunity to do a nice throwback to he Soccer match from Bednobs and Broomsticks as well which would have been interesting to see.  Still there were a couple of fun moments such as when Mickey ends up down on the field---but when Disney has done so many classic sports cartoons featuring Goofy this one didn't really come close.

This cartoon as well as the others in the series can be seen on the Disney channel or at Disney Video online,

Disney/Pixar Animated Short Reviews: #41 Down the Hatch 2014 8+ out of 10

Down the Hatch  2014     8+ out of 10

The latest in the new Series of Mickey Mouse cartoon features Mickey, Donald and Goofy in a tribute to the old Disneyland Attraction Adventures Thru Innerspace.   The gang heads to the Halls of Science which also gives us a cameo by another old school Disney character Ludwick Von Drake Duck

While Donald is getting himself a drink Mickey and Goofy get shrunk by a shrink ray after many references to the classic Tomorrowland ride.   They end up inside of Donald's body and explore Donald Fantastic Voyage style much to Donald's discomfort.  It makes for a strange and which fun cartoon and the references to this classic cartoon are something that only adults would get.  The cartoon even ends with Donald singing the classic song from the attraction during the end credits.   

This cartoon can be seen on the Disney channel or Disney's official You tube page.

Here is a little attraction audio for Disney fans that remember this ride
