Go To

"Yodelberg" is one of the season 1 shorts of the new Mickey Mouse (2013) series created by Paul Rudish for the Disney Channel and Disney.com. It's the second to air on the Disney Channel and the third/fourth to be put on Disney.com.

In Germany, Mickey hears Minnie yodelling but when Minnie invites him over to her cottage on top of a mountain, Mickey must venture upwards without causing an avalanche.

Tropes:

  • Animate Inanimate Object: The face on the bag of corn chips changes expression.
  • Art Shift: The backgrounds of this cartoon are done in the style of Disney Legend Mary Blair, best known for her contributions to such films as Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, and, most notably and visibly, It's a Small World.
  • Bigfoot, Sasquatch and Yeti: Mickey encounters a yeti that looks similar to the one in the Matterhorn Bobsleds Disneyland ride.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Mickey shushes the viewers in the beginning. The yeti makes a shaka sign to the viewers.
  • Gasshole / Burping Contest: Three characters of the former trope appear to be having one of the latter trope on the mountain.
  • Hair-Trigger Avalanche: Mickey spends most of the short trying to avoid this.
  • Medium-Shift Gag: From the yeti's point of view, the avalanche is shown in live-action.
  • Advertisement:
  • No-Dialogue Episode: There is only yodeling and other sound effects, no actual dialogue.
  • Oh, Crap!: Mickey makes this reaction every time throughout the short when something makes a sound that can cause an avalanche.
  • Scenery Porn: The Alpine mountains and houses are beautifully drawn.
  • Shout-Out:
    • The yeti and the bobsleds outside his cave are taken from the Matterhorn Bobsleds at Disneyland
    • Part of the music is based on the Swisskapolka from Swiss Family Robinson.
  • Yodel Land: The short seems to take place in the Alps based on the architecture, clothes and, of course, the yodeling (even though the Yeti is a monster associated with the Himalayas). There is no spoken dialogue to indicate the language, though.
