The discussion about the type of Mickey Mouse stories has been
interesting. I recall Don Rosa saying that he would never do a Mickey
story, since the character did not interest or therefore inspire him. Walt
Disney's original Mickey personality from the 1920's and 1930's seemed to
involve a character who was "plucky", i.e. beset by occasional difficulties
which he sometimes caused - either out of naivete or hubris - but who used
Yankee ingenuity to save the day, or who accepted the disaster and made a
joke out of it, shrugged it off, and moved on.
Perhaps a return to that kind of personality - rather than a rodentic
Sherlock Holmes - would be better.
