50 Disney references in Epic Mickey

A visual guide to the Disneyana you might've missed

From 1928’s “Steamboat Willie” often noted as Mickey’s first cartoon. It wasn’t. That distinction belongs to “Plane Crazy” which premiered just a few months earlier

Based on a the Oscar-winning short 1937 short “The Old Mill”

Looks to be based off Magic Kingdom’s Magic Carpet’s of Aladdin ride

From the 1937 animated short “Clock Cleaners”

Your first boss? The Small World Clock! He’s not so happy anymore

Mickey finds himself replaced in The Wastleland’s version of the famous Disneyland statue

The first thing you see when you walk in Disneyland is Main Street USA. Wasteland’s version is aptly titled “Mean Street”

Not who you think this is! The Wasteland is home to forgotten characters, after all, and few (living) still remember that Goofy originated as Dippy Dawg. His laugh was the same, but he was originally older and even had a wife

Mean Street also has a cinema, but the plays “different” cartoon shorts

Horace Horsecollar, a friend of Mickey’s so old he predates both Goofy and Donald

Another 2D transition level, another “Thru the Mirror” reference
