New Mickey Mouse Short - Wish Upon A Coin

Wish Upon a Coin--a hilarious new Mickey Mouse short was published to YouTube about a week ago. It features not only Mickey and Minnie but a several other Disney characters including Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Directed by William Reiss, Executive Producer Paul Rudish. Watch it here...

Cool-looking title plate.

The story begins innocently enough, with Snow White washing the steps to the Queen's castle. Moments later, however, the comedic tone of the film is set when Mickey and Minnie splash by on their way to the Wishing Well, leaving the princess drenched.

Mickey and Minnie sing I'm Wishing, then the classic villain Peg-Leg Pete steals all the coins. Now nobody's wishes will come true. Mickey takes off in pursuit and all pandemonium breaks out.

In the end, Mickey saves the day and everyone gets their wishes fulfilled--which for the dwarfs apparently means full heads of hair, plus a beard for Dopey.

And to take a page out of Snow White, "they lived happily ever after."

Special thanks to Dan Alexander Dizmentia and Joey Gallagher for posting the short on our facebook page.


  1. Brilliant! I loved the first season of these new MM cartoons and it's great to see they are making more. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I totally agree Brian. They have both the favor of the vintage Mickey shorts combined with a fresh style and humor updated for a new audience.

  2. I saw it the other day. And yes, it's brillant!

    "... and they lived happily ever after." ... ok, but Snow White is still in the coffin!!!

    1. Hi Maxime, Yeah I guess they kind of forgot about her. Oops. :)
