** According to Neal Gabler in his book "Walt Disney and the Triumph of the American Imagination", Walt "absolutely hated the WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}} cartoons, threatening constantly to terminate them before relenting, largely to provide work for his animators."

It should be noted, however, that Gabler's book cites no source for such a claim.

Added DiffLines:

* VanillaProtagonist: There's a startlingly low amount of shorts focused on Mickey in the 40s and 50s, even those categorised as his cartoon, his more laid back EveryMan persona making him rather dull compared to more proactive co stars such as Donald or Pluto.

** Clarice from "Two Chips And A Miss". She was in one cartoon and now she's a meetable character in the Ride/DisneyThemeParks. She's also pretty popular in Japan along with Chip and Dale themselves.

* VillainDecay: {{Pete}}. In his earlier apperances, he was actually a menace, a dangerous villain with a temper hot enough to shake Hell itself. Now he's usually a clumsy, idiotic SmugSnake.

* HypeBacklash: The shorts and characters are beloved and popular, but their exposure and esteemed reputation have made many see them as rather [[TastesLikeDiabetes quaint and juvenile]] in contrast to other cartoon series like LooneyTunes.

* AnimationAgeGhetto: ''TheSkeletonDance'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheMadDoctor'' were apparently so unusually scary for cartoons, some theater owners refused to show them, making this trope OlderThanTelevision.
* ArchivePanic: The original theatrical cartoons combined amount to 469 shorts total (not including shorts initially released as part of a bigger feature, such as the shorts in Disney/TheReluctantDragon, Disney/SaludosAmigos, Disney/TheThreeCaballeros and the 40's Disney package features) and that number shoots up to 562 if you include all of the silent Disney films (the Newman Laugh-O-Grams, the AliceComedies and OswaldTheLuckyRabbit)[[note]] although only around 50 of the 93 silent Disney films survive, are available or are known to exist[[/note]]--to watch all of them in chronological order would take around 66 hours and 30 minutes, or close to three days without sleep. And that's not counting post-Golden Age shorts, TV shows and feature animation appearances of the characters. And lets not even get started on the absolutely monstrous number of comics these characters have appeared in, ''especially'' the WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck comics.

** Ironically, the real [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Warner Bros. cartoons]] being made around the same time were intent on trying to ape the sweeter, sentimental elements of the Silly Symphonies. We won't see a WB cartoon as fast-paced as "Toby Tortoise Returns" until "WesternAnimation/DaffyDuckAndEgghead" and "PorkyInWackyland"
** Mickey Mouse's "Runaway Brain" from the 90's, which was the first ([[KingdomHearts but certainly not]] [[EpicMickey the last]]) attempt at returning Mickey to his adventureous, edgier roots. Whether it succeeded or not is up for debate.

** According to "Of Mice and Magic", some of the DonaldDuck staff grew to dislike the character and how formula driven his shorts became over time. One of the directors, veteran Jack Hannah (no relation to Hanna-Barbera) even complained "I got so damned tired of that duck's voice. I just could not stand having to work with it all the time."

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: Subverted. Most of Disney shorts were made for all audiences, so these shorts are safe for kids. Then there are shorts like "Der Fuehrer's Face" and "The Mad Doctor" that were blatantly made as propaganda for adults or pure NightmareFuel. Any kids watching those will become either terrified or totally confused.

* {{Funny Aneurysm Moment}}/HarsherInHindsight: Most of the gags in Goofy's "[[http://youtu.be/dMdTBep3W9c Teachers Are People]]" short, since it involves a kid turning in a handgun and grenade, threatening a classmate with a (water) pistol, and ''blowing up the school''.'
