YMMV / Runaway Brain

  • Character Rerailment: Before Epic Mickey and Mickey Mouse (2013), this short attempted to bring back Mickey's much more adventurous side, or at least reconcile the current Mickey's characterization with that of his old one.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Julius, as a Frankenstein, slobbering Mickey, does bear a resemblance to Sonic The Werehog.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Just the commercials for the short alone could terrify the young generation of that time.
  • Signature Scene: When Julius' brain is put into Mickey's body, we are treated to one of the creepiest depictions of Mickey Mouse, and easily the most iconic.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: Dr. Frankenollie—he manages to maintain that delicate balance of creepily sinister and comically entertaining almost flawlessly, something even particularly famous villains struggle with sometimes, so of course he's gonna be the Big Bad of the short, right? WRONG! Instead, he gets brutally killed off after appearing in only one scene. He did reappear in the CyberNettiquette Comix, though.
