Charmingly Retro New Mickey Mouse Cartoon Is in French for Some Reason

Croissant de Triomphe on Disney Video

Granted, the French language mostly consists of “croissant” and “cafe,” making it as easy to comprehend as The Triplets of Belleville, but it’s still a trip to see that most American of mice talking like a surrender-monkey.

Just kidding. Really. The mouse-monkey thing was too much of a gimme not to do.

Mickey’s become more of a corporate logo than a character in much of my lifetime, so I’m glad to see him displaying some personality again. Maybe Disney figured out that more kids today have seen the foul-mouthed South Park version of Mickey than an actual Mickey Mouse cartoon.
