* The story "Dalla parte sbagliata" (never released in English, unfortunately) has Mickey in a BananaRepublic 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 [[EnemyMine teams up]] with Pegleg Pete to recover the WesternAnimation/SteamboatWillie. HilarityEnsues.
** 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:
-->'''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!
** Pete's barge to recover the SW is [[TheAllegedCar The Alleged Boat]]. And he ''stole'' it. Then Mickey discovers that he stole it from a ''circus''.
*** Then Mickey grabs the IdiotBall and starts a bonfire on the barge.
-->'''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!
* 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 ''[[{{Troll}} 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? [[HilarityEnsues Wrong]]: [[DoingInTheWizard he's intelligent and cultured enough to give a scientific explanation for]] ''[[DoingInTheWizard anything]]'' [[DoingInTheWizard 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, [[JustifiedTrope applying the scientific method]], [[ShaggyDogStory 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 off... Then O'Hara showed all his sadism by making him the partner of a new officer with SuperOCD. The story's title is "Agente Gambadilegno, il Caso È Tuo!", or, in English, "Officer Pete, the Case Is Yours!".
** As the idea of Pete as a cop is just that funny, it happened ''again'': Mouseton's mayor, desperate to get indisciplinate drivers corrected, had decreed that any traffic violation over a certain limit would result in the perpetrator working as a street cop for a week, and Pete had just crashed into multiple cars while giving chase to two potential accomplices who had stolen his plan for a job... And he did it at the same time ''Goofy'' was being subjected to the same punishment due his antique car causing violations by just getting on the road. O'Hara, who had got Mickey to volunteer as Goofy's partner in the patrols, just added Pete and turned it in a three-men patrol with custom bikes, Mickey's having extensions for the pedals because he was too short otherwise, Pete's being reinforced to take [[FatBastard his weight]], and Goofy's having ''training wheels'' due his trouble at staying balanced. HilarityEnsues.
* In "Mickey and the 7 Boglins", Minnie [[SpotTheImposter 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 Accadrà 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 two things to say: [[HypocriticalHumour that the mysterious guy who asked him to do this was "bizarre"]], and that he also asked him to do another thing.
** 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 TimeMachine he knows of is in the basement of Mouseton's history museum... [[DidntSeeThatComing 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]]. [[OhCrap Pete's face when he realizes that]] ''[[NiceJobFixingItVillain he]]'' [[NiceJobFixingItVillain brought Mickey where the time machine was]] is priceless.
** The interactions between Future!Mickey and Past!Mickey, and [[OnlySaneWoman Past!Minnie's exasperation]].
** The archeologist that, in the past, discovered the Glove of Amnèzja, 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''. [[BrickJoke Guess who the "bizarre person" was?]]
* One of Gilbert's early stories got him kidnapped by Pete, who tought he was from a rich family (in Pete's defense he was studying at a boarding school for the rich and the geniuses, and couldn't know Gilbert was there on a scholarship). Mickey wants to rescue him... But Goofy isn't all that happy about this, as Gilbert at the time was an incredibly annoying combination of MotorMouth and InsufferableGenius, so the uncle was both unwilling to deal with his nephew again any time soon and [[PityTheKidnapper convinced that staying around Gilbert was punishment enough for the kidnappers]]. Cut to Pete, who's getting desperate to get rid of Gilbert.
** Near the end of the story, Mickey and Goofy have tracked Pete down, and Pete is advancing on them to kill them... And that's when it's discovered that Gilbert was ''annoying Pete on purpose'': [[PlayAlongPrisoner he could have beaten and captured Pete and his gang at any time thanks to his Judo skills]], he just felt it was safer to wait for a rescue until his rescuers were in danger.
** Pete learning that Gilbert wasn't rich... And he tolerated him for nothing.
