After all these years I have being watching Disney cartoons, I never realize how Mickey caricatures black people back then until now. Thanks a lot, Wikipedia!

Nice drawing by the way. It looks almost like those Mickey Mouse comic drawings.

Probably a very late comment, but I totally dig this. I love all of them, but my favorite has to be the bottom, left hand corner with Mickey being the mischievous rascal that he is. xD Great job! :+fav:

These are absolutely adorable! You've captured his personality so well in your fantastic, energetic, but very comfortably casual-looking style. I especially love that mischievous expression at the bottom, and the pose with the guitar. Very reminiscent of the Mickey they need to bring back and keep around. <3

So much love for these~!

Isn't that weird? The old pie-eyed Mickey showed blackface roots in his pink lips and white eyes... and then with a simple change of the eye design, he went from blackface to whiteface. Now he looks like a black mouse wearing a Caucasian face mask. Amazingly prescient on Disney's part; if he hadn't done that, Mickey would probably have had to be retired just as Bosko and Foxy before him.

I actually like the slightly more mouse-shaped ears you gave him. The circular ears are way too abstract in my opinion-- but I think you already made that point in an earlier picture, about his not being mouselike in any respect other than name.
