- The story "Dalla parte sbagliata" (never released in English, unfortunately) has Mickey in a Banana Republic ruled by a fascist dictator. One of the locals warns him that asking questions around here can be dangerous. Mickey soon learns this the hard way: cue a jolly old lady talking his ears off about her family history up to the wee hours of midnight, with the exhausted Mickey noting: "I simply asked her what the time was!"
- In "Mickey Mouse and the River of Time", the titular mouse teams up with Pegleg Pete to recover the Steamboat Willie. Hilarity Ensues.
Mickey: Hi, Minnie! Yes, but not right now! I'm here with Black Pete, and... (pause) No, I didn't capture him. (irritated pause; points the receiver towards Pete) Tell her.Pete: HE DIDN'T CAPTURE ME!Mickey: (listens to the answer) AND I'M NOT BEING HELD HOSTAGE, EITHER!Pete: Want me to talk to her? (steals the phone) Hiya, Minnie! What? Yeah, I trust you! ...What's that? He really did that? You don't say! What a clown! HAR HAR HAR!Pete: That's right! What did I always tell you? Yeah, uh huh...Mickey: What? Are you talking about me?... ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT ME?!?Pete: Well, I gotta go! Maybe we can talk again sometime!
- The beginning. Mickey wakes up and finds Pete in his house, who's talking amiably with him and having breakfast without permission. What's hilarious is that Mickey keeps an expression that's best described as "I'm too sleepy to give a damn".
- He then proceeds to call Minnie for help. It has to be read to be believed:
Pete: YOU MORON! You sank my first boat, and now you're burning up my second—you'll probably blow up my next one before we even leave port!
- Pete's barge to recover the SW is The Alleged Boat. And he stole it. Then Mickey discovers that he stole it from a circus.
- Then Mickey grabs the Idiot Ball and starts a bonfire on the barge.
- In the first issue of Mickey Mouse Mystery Magazine we see a college-age Mickey and his room mate at a drive-in, talking loud enough to disturb the other public of the crime movie. So someone protested... And they revealed the identity of the culprit and how they guessed it, so they wouldn't disturb anyone anymore.
- In one story, Witch Hazel learned that Goofy believed anything Gilbert told him, so she realized the key to convince Goofy she was a witch was to convince him. And Gilbert admitted that magic could could exist as he had no evidence of the opposite. Easy, right? Wrong: he's intelligent and cultured enough to give a scientific explanation for anything she does, and the one thing he couldn't explain away, namely conjuring a number of circus artist animals, was made unacceptable when the juggling octopus screwed up ("If it was magic, then everything would have been perfect").
- In the end Hazel used her ace-in-the-hole: a formidable pre-made spell, so expensive she could only buy the one. After seeing it Gilbert was amazed and admitted he couldn't give a scientific explanation for it... And then, applying the scientific method, demanded she did it again to verify it wasn't a fluke.
- In an Italian story (whose title we'll withold 'till the end of the entry so we won't ruin the joke), Pete was being tried for another caper, and the judge, seeing that his previous jail sentences had failed to correct his behaviour, gave him a rather 'interesting' form of penal labour: he enrolled him in the police. The whole Mouseton police laughed their collective ass of... Then O'Hara showed all his sadism by making him the partner of a new officer with Super OCD. The story's title is "Agente Gambadilegno, il Caso Č Tuo!", or, in English, "Officer Pete, the Case Is Yours!".
- In "Mickey and the 7 Boglins", Minnie realizes that Mickey has been replaced by Miklos, and decides to expose him. Her solution? Trick him into getting a heart tattoo with her name.
- The 2015 story "Tutto Questo Accadrŕ Ieri" is full with these:
- When he realizes it's Mickey's birthday, Goofy gives him a state-of-the-art cell phone with a video message of a young Goofy telling him to go there... Recorded in 1939. When asked about what's happening, Goofy only has one thing to say: that the mysterious guy who asked him to do this was 'bizarre'.
- While Goofy's busy doing the other thing the mysterious guy asked him to, Mickey finds out that Pete has kidnapped Minnie, and has to go at a destroyed light tower over a cliff. Turns out Pete has remembered that, on June 6 1939, a time travelling Mickey coming from that exact day stopped him from taking over the world in that place, and Pete has decided to change history by having Mickey stay there all day, threatening to drop Minnie on the rocks under the tower if he tries anything. Mickey is worried, because the Time Machine he knows of is in the basement of Mouseton's history museum... Cue the time machine and the archeologist and the scientist who own it emerging from the light tower's ruin because the museum was being renovated and they don't want it to be discovered. Pete's face when he realizes that he brought Mickey where the time machine was is priceless.
- The interactions between Future!Mickey and Past!Mickey, and Past!Minnie's exasperation.
- The archeologist that, in the past, discovered the Glove of Amnčzja, an artifact with immense hypnotic powers that Past!Pete wants to use to rule the world, is first seen in person in his underwear fishing from a bucket.
- Past!Pete is selling TVs at a low price so he'll hit everyone with the Glove's power, and keeps the price low by hypnotizing his factory's workers into believing they spent half their pay on charity or pistachio ice cream.
- When Past!Pete finds out that one of the Mickeys trying to stop him is a time traveller coming from the days of his birthday, he only has one thing to say:
"Do you really celebrate your birthday going back in time to annoy people?"
- Future!Mickey shooting at Pete with a howitzer.
- When Mickey returns to 2015, Pete drops Minnie on the rocks, and Mickey jumps after her. Pete and the professors think they are dead... Then Pete looks down, and has only one thing to say:
"W-WHO PUT AN INFLATABLE MATTRESS THERE?!?"
- The answer to that question is just as priceless: Goofy... following the instructions of Mickey during the time travel.
