We shouldn’t have to sensor Mickey Mouse from our children. I don’t even have kids and am embarrassed for anyone who would be okay letting their kids see this. Especially when it’s supposed to be heartwarming. What the hell are we coming to?

Absolutely incredible film

Ratatoing is a masterpiece from beginning to end. Beautiful cgi, epic action, a strong and complex story, and unforgettable characters. It is an experience which has to be witnessed. And if have you haven’t seen it, please rectify that as soon as possible.

Is It Any Good?

This not-so-wonderful winter spin-off is definitely not the typical Mickey Mouse special full of music and colors for the littlest viewers. In The Wonderful Winter of Mickey Mouse, the comical absurdity and nonsensical violence typical of Looney Tunes meets the grotesque close-up reminiscent of The Ren & Stimpy Show, all with a retro Disney look, but zero Disney vibe (and even less substance, if that's even possible). Fans of The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse may enjoy the winter celebration, but those looking for something more on-brand for Disney will be in for a rude awakening.
