What Sucks...Mickey Mouse As An Actor


Sucks. Seriously, what has he done?

He’s been shoved down our throats for about 3 generations now and to be honest, Cedric The Entertainer has made more quality films.

Fantasia? You’re seeing this movie for the dancing brooms, and because you’re high. Take Mickey out and replace him with Pete’s Dragon and tell me it’s not a better film, especially if you’re high.

Steamboat Willie? Overrated. Take a look at it again- a movie about a mouse steering a boat. I’m sorry, it doesn’t hold up, and it’s vaguely racist.

Mickey’s Christmas Carol? This one is just sad- Mickey is cast as Bob Cratchit- clearly a supporting role- as Disney tries to cash in on his name recognition, meanwhile, Scrooge McDuck delivers a blistering performance as Scrooge, blowing Mickey off the screen and pretty much gets ignored for it.

Even Mickey’s cameo in “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” is overshadowed by the much funnier Bugs Bunny.

The bottom line is, while he may get it done as an icon, but his less than stellar career is the biggest unmentioned item in Hollywood other than Hugh Jackman’s gayness.

You are so fucking right! I hate Mickey Mouse! I have no IDEA why he is loved! Screw him and the child-slave-loboring CEO douches in Walt Disney!
