Mondo Disney

Thank you Facebook, for allowing us to to see another side of Disney – off model Mickeys, awkward Donalds and suggestive Pigs – courtesy of postings from around the world. Just had to share some of my favorites:







  • T. King

    Hehe, the Mickey up top is kinda cute.

    That Donald Duck ride is amazing. It must be even more amazing in motion, bouncing up and down.

  • Jody Morgan

    I like the goofy-looking Donald in the third photo. And is anyone else curious about that magazine in the last photo? I mean, what audience were they aiming for there?

    • dbenson

      My first thought was publicity for some kind of nightclub show or revue, with an unauthorized or satirical pig sketch. In sequels the Big Bad Wolf pursued the two lazy pigs disguised as a fairy and a seductive mermaid, which adds yet another dimension to this shot (“How am I doin’, folks?”).

    That water gun packaging is almost “Doland” worthy.

  • Russell H

    Donald in the fifth photo seems to be wearing a World War II *Kriegsmarine* uniform. Was this for a naval sequel to “Der Fuhrer’s Face?”

    • The G Man

      That poster appears to be from the mid-50s. Note the inclusion of Chip and Dale, plus the cannibal from 1954′s “Spare the Rod.”

    Blue Raider Mickey wants his nose back.

      And can Pluto have his leg back while we’re at it?

    The faces of the pigs in the last photo are hilarious. I quite like the second and fifth pictures, especially the fifth one, it’s out of model but in a funny and good looking way.

    Blue Raider is delightfully insane

    “Mickey’s got no nose!”
    “How does he smell?”
    “Terrible!”

  • Katella Gate

    The weirdest aspect of the “Do Me Donald Duck” ride? It’s in somebody’s private residence.

  • Valentin Moretto

    Girl on Donald Duck Ride: “Mommy, Donald has that weird look on his face again!”

  • Tony McCarson

    That is weird to the max!

  • Funkybat

    The “Donald Ride” photo is just so wrong…

  • Scarabim

    That Donald Duck..thing…even tops mechanical bulls when it comes to suggestive ride vehicles.
