* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: A minor example. It's a great game and a good 65th anniversary tribute to Mickey, but one wonders why there was no level devoted to the "Sorcerer's Apprentice" from Disney/{{Fantasia}}. That's one of Mickey's most iconic moments.
** Perhaps because that was a segment from a Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon compilation film and not a proper standalone Mickey Mouse short.
*** But "Mickey and the Beanstalk" also fits that description and is a level here.
*** That and there was already a game featuring the Sorcerer's Apprentice aka the Fantasia Genesis game.

** The level that takes the cake, however, is the segment of ''the Prince and the Pauper'' immediately preceding the tower. Tricky moving platform rides, pools of lava with fireballs that fly at you in completely random directions, a pit with walls that will crush you if you don't descend fast enough, a hallway full of spear traps that can skewer your entire health meter if you don't run through it at just the right time, and of course, the aforementioned DemonicSpider Weasels the whole way through, with limited marbles meaning you have to be very choosy with which ones you take out.

To top it all off, due to CheckpointStarvation throughout the level, this whole gauntlet must be done ''in one go''.

* ThatOneLevel: ''The Mad Doctor'', particularly the elevator ride shortly before the boss, as dodging or surviving the onslaught of skeleton bones in such a small space is damn near a LuckBasedMission. The gurney ride will likely take more than a few tries as well until you're comfortable with jumping over the pits.

* PolishedPort: The CD versions of the game feature high quality CD music by composer Michael Giacchino, even more Mickey Mouse voice clips provided by then-current Mickey voice actor Wayne Allwine, and extended versions of levels like the Mad Doctor stage. However the PS1 version also features higher quality graphics compared to the Sega CD version, with all the sprites having been redrawn, and a new chase sequence added to the end of the Mickey and the Beanstalk stage featuring Willie the Giant.

The only problems some might have with the PS1 port was it was made even harder than the other versions, and both the original retail release and the PSN release suffer from NoExportForYou, having only been released in PAL regions.

* PortingDisaster: Well not so much a "disaster" as it's just clear the game was possibly made more with the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive in mind rather than the SNES, as the SNES version has noticeable omissions compared to the Genesis/MD version. Level 5.5 is absent in the SNES port, some graphical effects like the film reel effect in the first level is missing, a segment of the Mad Doctor level is gone, one of the Mode-7 stages is gone (odd given Mode-7 was one of the SNES' big graphical features), there are less Mickey sound bites, but most noticable of all there are actually mid-level load screens in SNES port, which is odd given the game runs off a cartridge. One area some might consider superior are the sound effects and music, but that usually depends on who is asked. While still a well remembered port for those who played it on SNES, and far from a terrible one, it's still clear the developers made the game more with the SNES' rival in mind (and likely why Traveler's Tales future Disney games had the SNES ports handled by other teams).

** Right before the boss fight against the Mad Doctor begins, he removes a black cloak that makes him resemble the Phantom Blot, Mickey's lesser-known archnemesis from the ComicBookMickeyMouseComicUniverse. The VideoGame/EpicMickey game would later feature the Mad Doctor and a revamped version of the Phantom Blot called the Shadow Blot as the main antagonists.
