Spotted today in a Sydney, Australia, bargain store. Perfect for Halloween - and lawsuits from Disney. Don't you love the company logo inspired by Walt's autograph?

HAHAHAHA! My favorite part is "Lucky Mouse"! "Mouse & Friends" is a close second!

It's a really interesting piece actually. It's base on Disney's 1995 Mickey Mouse short "Runaway Brain" in which Mickey has his brain swapped by a mad scientist and becomes almost rabid. It's actually a very cool short, despite mixed feedback on it by parents. Disney company shied away from it for a number of years, but recently they have been embracing it a little more and releasing statues and other merchandise based on it. Normally when you see bootlegs and knock offs, they are nice and generic, not based on a one time obscure short! For those who have never seen the short, it's pretty cool, I'll post it below (sorry about the weird subtitles on this one, it was the best quality one I cold find...)

This is exactly what an official Disney product box would look like if you combined the '90s Mickey packaging with the 2000s Mickey packaging.  And that is what someone decided to do.  Bold.
