So do any of you remember those Mickey Mouse cartoons from the ? The ones that were just
put out on DVDs few years ago? Well, I hear there is one that was unreleased to even the most avid
classic disney fans. According to sources, it' s nothing special. It' s just a continuous loop (like
flinstones) of mickey walking past 5 buildings that goes on for two or three minutes before fading out-
Unlike the cutesy tunes put in though, the song on this cartoon was not a song at all, just a constant
banging on a piano as if the keys for a minute and a half before going to white noise for the remainder
of the film. It wasn' t the jolly old Mickey we' come to love either, Mickey wasn' t dancing, not even
smiling, just kind of walking as if you or I were walking, with a normal facial expression, but for some
reason his head tilted side to side as he kept this dismal look. Up until ayear or two ago, everyone
believed that after it cut to black and that was it.
When Leonard Maltin was reviewing the cartoon to be put in the complete series, he decided it was
too junk to be on the DVD, but wanted to have a digital copy due to the fact that it was a creation of
Walt. When he had advertized version up on his computer's look at the file, he noticed something.
The cartoon was actually 9 minutes and 4 seconds long. This is what my source emailed to me, in
full (he is a personal assistant of one ofthe higher executives at Disney, and acquaintance of Mr.
After it cut to black, it stayed like that until the tth minute, before going back into Mickey walking.
The sound was different this time. It was a murmur. It wasn' t a language, but more like a gurgled cry.
As the noise got more indistinguishable and loud over the next minute, the picture began to get
weird. The sidewalk started to go in directions that seemed impossible based on the physics of
Mickeys walking. And the dismal face of the mouse was slowly curling into a smirk. On the Tth
minute, the murmur turned into a bloodcurdling scream (the kind of scream painful to hear) and the
picture was getting more obscure. Colors were happening that shouldnt have been possible at the
time. Mickey face began to fall apart. his eyes rolled on the bottom of his chin like two marbles in a
fishbowl, and his curled smile was pointing upward on the left side of his face-
The buildings became rubble floating in midair and the sidewalk was still impossibly navigating in
warped directions, a few seeming inconcievable with what we, as humans, know about direction. Mr.
Maltin got disturbed and left the room, sending an employee to finish the video and take notes of
everything happening up until the last second, and afterward immediately store the disc of the
cartoon into the vault. This distorted screaming lasted until 8 minutes and afew seconds in, and then
it abruptly cuts to the mickey mouse face at the credits of the end of every video with what sounded
like a broken music box playing in the backround.
This happened for about 30 seconds, and whateverman in that remaining 30 seconds I heaven‘ t been
able to get a sliver of information. From a security guard working under me who was making rounds
outside of that room, I was told that after the last frame, the employee stumbled out of the room with
pale skin saying "Real suffering is not known" T times before taking the guards pistol and committing
suicide. The thing I could get out of Leonard Maltin was that the last frame was a piece of russian
text that roughly said "the sights of hell bring its viewers back in". As far as I know, no one else has
seen it, but there have been dozens of attempts at getting the file on rapidshare by employees inside
the studios, all ofthem have been promptly terminated - Ifyou find this film, do not
