There's Something...Off about World of Illusion

Mickey Mouse needs no introduction. His video games, however, do. Back in the late 80s and early 90s, Disney loaned out their beloved character to various video game studios, such as Capcom. Numerous games of varying quality (though generally that quality was fairly high) were produced for the major consoles at the time. For the Sega Genesis, Disney let Sega develop a few games featuring the mouse. Those games were Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and its sequel, World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.

I had World of Illusion.It was one of the first video games I owned. And it terrified me.
World of Illusionstarts with Mickey and Donald preparing for a magic show, when they find a mysterious box. While examining the box, Mickey and Donald are teleported away to the Alice In Wonderland-esque World of Illusion, with nothing but their magic capes to defend themselves. Together (or separate, if you're playing Single-Player), Mickey and Donald must escape this world in time to perform their magic show.

Sounds pretty innocent, right? As with everything, the devil is in the details.

Better run fast.

EDIT: I can't get the images to appear when I resize them. They just show up as Code in my blog. Anyone have this problem or know how to fix it?
