''Mickey's Orphans'' is a 1931 animated short film (7 minutes) by Disney, starring WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse. It was directed by Burt Gillett.

It's Christmas time at the Mouse house, with Mickey decorating the Christmas tree while Minnie plays the piano and sings carols and [[WesternAnimation/PlutoThePup Pluto]] sleeps by the fire. A stooped old woman stops at the front door, leaves a basket, and rings the bell. Mickey opens the door, picks up the basket, and is surprised to find a kitten peeking out from under the top blanket. As Mickey and Minnie coo over the kitten, Pluto whips the blanket off the basked, revealing something like two dozen kittens.

* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Minnie as always, looking just like Mickey except for her long lashes, frilly skirt, and heeled shoes.
