* IAmNotShazam: His name is Dr. XXX, not "the Mad Doctor". This isn't helped by the fact that ''VideoGame/EpicMickey'' calls him the latter rather than the former, but not without reason--[[HaveAGayOldTime XXX has a much different connotation today than it did in 1933]][[note]]In the 1930's, a XXX mark was a common marking for jugs of moonshine or alcohol in general, making the original name [[PunnyName a punny one.]] Today, XXX is a shorthand for highly pornographic materials, making his original name [[AccidentalInnuendo rather unfortunate sounding now.]][[/note]], so the character [[AdaptationalNameChange was simply renamed after the cartoon he hailed from.]]

** ''VideoGame/MickeyMania'' made this mistake even earlier by having Mickey's voice clip call him the Mad Doctor, though given its context, it could have simply been referring to the short/level itself.

** MickeyMania made this mistake even earlier by having Mickey's voice clip call him the Mad Doctor.

* VindicatedByHistory: While the short was apparently shunned in its initial release, it has retroactively become one of the most popular MickeyMouse shorts, to where the villain not only reappeared in MickeyMania, but was given a prominent role in both of the EpicMickey games.
