* BigShadowLittleCreature: Right after the long shot of Mickey in the corridors, he winds up between the shadows of two towering wolf-like creatures staring down on him. He turns around, only to see two metal figures not even his height in front of a fire. Even Mickey himself laughs at this, at least until a coal ember burns him.



* StealthPun: One drawing on the board, has a chicken, then a plus sign, then a dog, then a division sign, then a saw. Get it? [[CrossesTheLineTwice A dog divided by a saw?]]

drawing on the board, has a chicken, then a plus sign, then board is the sequence of a dog, then a division sign, then a saw. Get it? [[CrossesTheLineTwice A dog divided by a saw?]]saw?]]
** Two more that also double as {{Visual Pun}}s occur during Dr. XXX's monologue to Pluto, who is strapped under an X-Ray allowing view of his heart and ribcage. Halfway through, Pluto's heart begins to race and jumps up into his throat (so he ''has his heart in his throat''). Then at the conclusion of the monologue, his heart falls all the way down to his pelvis (or ''his heart sank'').

A [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1933]] WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse short, while not known for being particularly innovative, is quite popular among Classic Disney fans for its sheer dark, macabre tone.

The plot of the short is centered on Mickey, as [[WesternAnimation/PlutoThePup Pluto]] is kidnapped by the mad doctor of the title (named Dr. XXX) to be used in a chimera-esque experiment involving cutting off Pluto's head and splicing it onto the body of a chicken. Naturally, Mickey treks off to save him, all while trying to make his way through the doctor's elaborate castle.

* DoorJudo: Mickey falling victim to this is what sets up the climax.

* MatryoshkaObject: When Mickey hears Pluto howling near the end, he encounters a door version of this; he opens five doors that are all on the same hinges before reaching the locked sixth, which he resolves to ramming. [[DoorJudo It doesn't go how he expected.]]



* RammingAlwaysWorks: Except when the door can make use of DoorJudo all by itself.



* StockScream: Mickey's yells in this short are easily mistakable for the famous [[{{Goofy}} Goofy Holler]]. (They are slightly different, but seem to be early versions of it).

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Dr. XXX cutting Pluto's shadow in half is the last shot we see of the poor dog inside the castle. {{Justified|Trope}} due to [[spoiler:the whole thing being a dream]].
