Countdown to Epic Mickey: "Plane Crazy"


So here's a thing I've decided to try. With Epic Mickey two weeks away, I've decided that in preparation, every day I'll post a classic Mickey Mouse or Oswald the Lucky Rabbit cartoon with a little bit of commentary. We'll see if anyone notices, but I figure that since a lot of these cartoons are going to be referenced in the game, it's a good way to get ready.

First up is the very first Mickey Mouse cartoon: "Plane Crazy." Since Disney uses the premiere date of "Steamboat Willie" (November 18, 1928) Mickey's official birthday, most people assume that it was also Mickey's first cartoon. While it was the first cartoon with synchronized sound, his actual debut came in this silent cartoon on May 15, 1928. It was later re-released with sound on March 17, 1929.

Watching this cartoon, you'll notice something to which Holmes alluded in his preview: Mickey was kind of a jerk, trying to kiss Minnie when she clearly had no interest. Because of his behavior here, which is similar to the way Oswald behaved in his cartoons, a lot of people believe this was originally meant to star the amorous rabbit.

And now, "Plane Crazy."

I'll be back tomorrow with another Mickey cartoon. Hope you all enjoy this little feature!

I've been playing games since before I can remember. I was raised on Nintendo systems (all of them but the Virtual Boy), so my "loyalties" still lie with Mario and Co. Every time I try to organize a list of my favorite games I end up forgetting something, or debating between two, so here's a list of my top ten games, in no particular order, with no doubles per series (unless I can't decide between two--I'm very indecisive):

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
Super Metroid (sometimes I can't decide between this and Zero Mission... If that game were longer, maybe)
Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
Mega Man 2 or 9 (not sure which)
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Trials and Tribulations
Super Smash Bros. Brawl

You know what, forget this, my self-imposed restrictions have made this way too hard.

Also, you should know, I am a huge Disney fan. Growing up is for losers.
