Some of the examples need rewriting.

Mickey Mousing is actually NOT cutting a scene to pre-existing music, as in many (movie) examples on this page, but the music written to match the action in the scene, as e. g. in Tom and Jerry cartoons. It works just one way, not both ways.

The article says scoring. Not sure where the idea might have come from that it is action-to-music rather than music-to-action.

A note to those who are thinking about making a TRS thread for this trope: This is the pre-existing, industry term for this trope. Yes, it's not very clear. We agree. But we'd probably need a really good reason to rename this one.

I think the video game section needs to be overhauled: I don't really play much, so I can't be sure, but from the descriptions given most of these examples are not Mickey Mousing.
