Man, I love these shorts
>The Voice of Scrooge MCDuck is 96 years old
Disney please stop spamming 4chan with your shitty shorts that no one likes
They get like 1 legitimate view on YouTube and nobody ever talks about them except the shills.

Minnie has achieved max preciousness. I can't think of another time she's been cuter.
One of my favorite jokes is this one because it looks a little bit like rape.
It's hard to put into words but there's this modernized cynicism about them that doesn't match the nostalgic vibe.
It's like The Looney Tunes Show where Bugs was like this exasperated, seen-it-all type. It's a characterization that only makes sense when you see it through current trends, not the characterization he descends from.
I don't think I quite understand you. I guess there are a few jokes in these shorts that rely on shocking the view with absurdity or weirdness? Is that what you mean? If anything these shorts are some of the happiest things I've seen in a while.
It's not like Mickey's characterization has every really been consistant. I mean, what was the most recent mickey mouse thing before this? That preschool show? Get a Horse? And I think before that was Runaway Brain.
I like that they found a way to make the neutered (since becoming the company mascot) Mickey actually funny by making him the straight man amongst insane characters, reminds me of Kermit.
It's Rosa headcanon, I don't think it's actually been made official anywhere.
This. These shorts do a good job of balancing the violent bastard original early 20th Century versions of Disney characters with their late 20th Century bland sanitised versions. They're kinda dickish in these, but ultimately good guys. I think it's a good compromise.
Holy fuck, that you OP. I had no idea these even existed, they're hilarious.
I never stayed too interested in the Disney characters past early childhood since their 'modern' incarnations weren't all that funny (preferred Looney Tunes), though whenever I've watched early Silly Symphony style ones with dickhead Mickey I've found them pretty fun.
Workin' Stiff just had me in fucking stitches.
>according to timeline even the duck bros are dead by now
>Mickey can't say "no"
>but people phrase all of their requests as "do you mind if...?", in which case "yes" is actually the negative response.
My autism was triggered. Still a great short, as most.

New Mickey has pretty decent delivery, although it seems they've decided to adapt his voice a little instead of just trying to mimic Walt.
>I have something else that needs fixing
Wait never mind
