  • The Phantom Blot and his daughter in "The Big Fall" and "A Phantom Blot Bedtime Story" are hard to not feel for. "The Big Fall" is a regular story about Mickey vs the Phantom Blot in a battle of wills over a stolen diamond, if with a slightly more theatrical Blot and a weird bit about a kidnappng of someone whom the Blot describes as the most important lady in his life. Mickey doesn't believe a word of it, but plays along after handling some backup. The Blot's plan fails and so does his escape. When Mickey comes to arrest him, he notes that "that's no way to end a story" and willingly drops himself in the hole he'd been hanging over. Cue to a spot above the crime scene where a miniature blot cries for her father and that she didn't want the diamond that badly. The part about there being an "important lady" wasn't a lie. "A Phantom Blot Bedtime Story" starts in the Phantom Brat's bedroom as she wonders if her father will come home when he does (it's implied the events of "The Big Fall" are a story-fied version of what actually happpened). She wants a bedtime story before going to sleep, so the Phantom Blot offers her one about the Good King (himself) and the White Knight (Mickey). What follows is a tale of how the Phantom Blot forced Mickey through a death maze against the clock to save Goofy and Pluto, all told as if the Good King is the hero and the White Knight the villain who wants the Good King and his little princess to have nothing. In the end, the White Knight and his posse live and the Phantom Brat is curious how the Good King got away. As she falls asleep, the Phantom Blot pats her on the head, revealing handcuffs as he tells her he didn't. Outside the bedroom, he thanks Mickey (and the police) for letting him tell his daughter himself it's jail time for him. Tear Jerker aside, it's a nice read how the Phantom Blot is willing to put all his skill as a master criminal to use not only to get his daughter gifts but also to get good material for a bedtime story out of the theft.

  • After a messy trip to dinosaur times, Mickey, Goofy, Einmug, and Wiley Wildebeest return to their time period only to find dinosaurs now are the dominant species. At the start of "The Future Ain't What It Used to Be!", they figure out that all their friends still technically exist, but as dinosaur equivalents, while they themselves have no counterparts and aren't recognized as persons. On their flight to restore their own timeline, they are followed by a dinosaur named Randy who's a police officer and trying to make up for letting them escape. He learns of their intent to alter the past and sets out to stop them because he does not want his world to disappear. He ends up helping Mickey, Goofy, and Einmug prevent Wiley pulling one over on them, but as such he can't halt the restoration of the timeline and is erased. When Mickey and Goofy return to their own Mouseton, they meet up with Chief O'Hara, who introduces them to a new recruit at the police station: a dogface by the name of Randy.

  • Pretty much the entirety of "Agente Gambadilegno, il Caso è Suo" ("Agent Pegleg, the Case is Yours). The setup: after being arrested for the nth time, the judge decides to give Pete an "instructive and exemplary punishment": make him a cop for a few weeks. O'Hara pairs Pete with Arnold McTedious, an extremely precise and by-the-book recruit. Despite the obvious differences, Pete warms up to Arnold, at one point defending him from some colleagues. Unfortunately, because of Pete leaving the car for a snack, Arnold didn't know that a nearby speeding car was driven by undercover cops, running an operation to arrest some counterfeiters; when he gave chase and stopped them, he ended up ruining the entire operation and being suspended from service. Pete, feeling guilty, helped him and O'Hara organize the capture of the same counterfeiters the original undercover operation was meant to arrest. And then we have the ending:
    [Flashback at the police station]
    O'Hara: And this way, nobody will ever know you helped a screw.
    Pete: NO! I didn't help no screw! ...I lent a hand to a friend!
    Arnold: Thanks, bud. Before you go, I want to give you a souvenir... No, a memory.
    [Cut to the present, Pete's attic. He's looking fondly at his cop uniform.]
    [Cut to outside Pete's home. A police car (heavily implied to be Arnold's) drives off.]

  • The relationship between Mickey and his great uncle John Rattinger. As Rattinger had been a gangster in his youth his close family erased all evidence he was one of them, leading to Mickey not knowing of him (all he has is a picture of his great aunt and her three brothers, one of which has his head cut away). Years later Rattinger, who has reformed during his time in jail and became a lawyer, goes to Mouseton to meet him without revealing they're related... And when Mickey is accused of committing a bank robbery while disguised as him and is about to be convicted due his attorney's incompetence he barges in the proceedings, reveals his identity as the actual Rattinger and a lawyer, convinces Mickey to let him replace the attorney, and not only proves that the prosecution's key witness had been wrong but also identifies the real copycat before leaving town, happy to have met his great nephew but without revealing their relation... But not before Mickey tells him he'd be proud to be his great nephew. A continuation of Rattinger's one story reveals Mickey figured it out soon after and tracked Rattinger down just to tell to his face that he's indeed proud to have him as a great uncle.
