** {{Meta}}-example: Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, even after 80 years, was still owned by NBC/Universal, not Creator/{{Disney}}. To get him back into their intellectual property, Creator/{{Disney}} gave Creator/{{Universal}} one of their sportscasters, Al Michaels. Interestingly, [[Creator/WaltDisney Walt]] himself was happy that Creator/WalterLantz had been using Oswald and had been taken from Charles Mintz.

* AdaptationalAngstUpgrade: Oswald never became obscure, making cartoons into the late 40's and starring in Creator/DCComics in the 50's. From the 60's, ownward, [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff he remained popular in Europe]]. It didn't hurt that ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' paid homage to him with their main characters. Disney reacquired the character in 2011, and the game was a way to reintroduce him to young American audiences. In short, Oswald was only overshadowed by Mickey Mouse.

** The Bunny Kids; they're adorable little bunnies and eat blotlings. [[FridgeHorror Wait, what?]]

** There was also a notion with Mickey's paint abilities to make it look as if he was channeling HIS OWN PAINT through the brush, but it looked too {{Narm}}-ish in testing by making Mickey look like he was getting male pattern baldness.

* CameraScrew: A common complaint is that the camera will often swing out of the player's control, even in areas where platforming is necessary.
** WordOfGod is that developing a camera for a 3D environment where walls and floors can appear and disappear ''at any time'' was a rather difficult challenge.

** Not to mention (for a given definition of "Fairy") Gus, who fits a more conventional version of this role. He hovers about explaining things, introduces the new levels, [[AnnoyingVideoGameHelper asks if you want to enter/exit every building ever...]]

* ChasteToons: Averted with Oswald, who's had a lot of kids in the years he's been in the Wasteland -- [[ExplosiveBreeder he's a rabbit, after all]]. And much to their father's chagrin, they adore "Uncle Mickey".
** GeniusBonus: His girlfriend, Ortensia, is a cat. Female cats are known to be VERY promiscuous.
* ChristmasRushed: WordOfGod is that ''Epic Mickey'' was rushed to reach store shelves by the 2010 holiday season, which explains a few of the game's rougher edges. Even with the rush, it still missed the "Black Friday" after-Thanksgiving shopping weekend.

Its pacing and design is heavily akin to {{Nintendo 64}} platformers like ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie''.
