Mickey Mouse is basically the king of cartoon characters and if you’re not a (somewhat) fan, then who hurt you? This cute cartoon character first found fame back in 1928 and has since been the face of many things Disney. But Mickey Mouse is not always so in your face than you think, with many of this famouse character’s face or references made secretly in other Disney and Disney/Pixar movies.
Here are our top 10 favourite times you secretly see Mickey Mouse in other movies:
One of the famous Disney Princesses, Cinderella has become a beloved character for original and new fans. Although Cinderella has her own mouse companions, the most famous mouse of them all – Mickey Mouse – makes a sneaky appearance in this 1950 movie. Or the shape of his head does, at least. You will notice a very Mikey Mouse looking bubble pattern while poor Cinderella is forced to scrub the floors.
The Lion King
It’s easiest to use the Mickey Mouse head as a pattern, like on a bug. This is where you will spot a Mickey Mouse reference in The Lion King when Timon and Pumbaa are looking for juicy bugs to feast on.
You will spot Mickey Mouse in all his glory on a billboard in the popular Wreck-It Ralph movie.
You would expect to find Mickey Mouse hidden somewhere between one of the many Rescuer mice. But he is actually hung up on the wall as a big clock which would be a wrist watch for humans.
Anna has a Mickey Mouse hidden away between books and other things you’d expect to see in a teenager’s room.
The Little Mermaid
Who knew that Mickey Mouse and his pals Goofy and Donald Duck had the ability to breath under water. You will spot Mickey Mouse and his classic cartoon friends between the other merpeople in The Little Mermaid.
Lilo and Stitch
Proving again that the Mickey Mouse head is easy to hide sneakily.
Beauty and the Beast
This Mickey Mouse reference is a little more subtle, but once you spot it, it’s difficult to unsee.
The Goofy Movie
What kind of pal would Mickey Mouse be if he didn’t support one of his best friends when he makes his own movie.
Although there is no official list of Mickey Mouse references in other movies, we’re sure once you start looking for him, he will pop up everywhere.
