the naked mouse

Ever wonder what famous actors look like naked? Well, just like many other Hollywood stars, Mickey Mouse once did a tastefully brief nude scene, never imagining that someday home video and the freeze-frame button would make it possible for rodent gawkers to fully examine him.

A scene from "Barnyard Battle" (1929):

Times they have changed. If they did a scene like that now, Mickey would have to have some drawn-on polkadot boxers underneath his drawn-on button-up pants.

But next time a former child star commits an embarassing wardrobe slip, they can just say it's a Disney tradition.
