      Believe i saw it once but I confused it for the episode where (I think) Mickey, Donald and Goofy come across maybe the same "doctor" that ordered an organ, which turned out to be an internal one from one of the trio.

      The reason I watched this cartoon was because Julius was a secret boss in Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance. I watched on AMget and I was surprised to see that this cartoon was lot different then the other Mickey shorts, a lot more darker and spooky. So of course I loved!

    Why does Goofy walk Pluto on a leash... I always had a theory that they're not exactly the same species - they had a common ancestor, but somewhere they took two branches - while one branch remained in its animalistic form, the other evolved into an intelligent being. Kinda like with us and apes.

    I vaguely recalled this from a compilation VHS with all the obvious classics, with Runaway Brain being touted as the most recent release. I can't say I was scared of it, I actually liked the the more gritty angle they went with which is something you don't really see anymore! Sidenote, the "You monster, me Mickey" at 7:33 is a reference to 'Mickey's Man Friday' from the 1930's, which is a *little* odd considering the racist undertones in that one...

    EASTER EGG ALERT! Whenever you see Mickey Mouse try to explain who he is to someone by holding his hand up to indicate someone small, that's a reference to 1939's "The Pointer" wherein Mickey tries to talk his way out of being mauled by a bear. Walt was still one of the people doing his voice back then and they took reference video of him recording dialog. When he got to the lines, "Well, I'm Mickey Mouse! ...You know, Mickey Mouse?" Walt held his hand up to where he thought Mickey's height would be.

    .... I think mickey needs to go on more adventure's that risk his neck. You see Mickey in odd situations in the newer cartoons and such, Run-away brain is seeing him in an adventure for once where a lot more is at risk and not the direct to video spin-offs of the 3 muskuteer's or prince and the pauper. The expressions they attained and the scenes of action they bend with this was beautiful.

    For me, this was half a lifetime ago. I loved nerding out on new animation, and Disney advertised this short heavily! I'm sure I paid to watch A Kid In King Arthur's Court, and left after watching Runaway Brain, seriously. It's darker than I remember. Never was a horror fan so I missed a lot of the obvious homages. I did get the Frank & Ollie reference.

    You know, it's a pretty clever thing to have your main characters be a mouse, a bird, and a dog and have your villain be a cat.
