The early black-and-white shorts borrow from Otto Messmer's Felix, with none of the imagination. The character never had much in the way of personality. By and large, handsome and charming drawing/movement was about all the series had in its favor. Animation by masters Fred Moore, Les Clark, Ken Muse and the like will always remain useful in analyzing bygone principles of the artform.
That doesn't mean he wasn't featured in some of the most wonderful cartoons ever made, of course.

Which is probably why nobody bought it until they added sound.   Wink

Mickey was deemed an Oswald rip-off until they added sound to Steamboat Willie.

Yes, Oswald, that  was  the corporate  mascots name, Disney  left  with that  Werks  guy to create  Mickey. In any event, most  creations  build  on something that was before  it.

Mickey was originally a bit more of an everyman type character and a bit more adventurous, but most of those traits got passed on to Donald and Goofy, leaving Mickey to play the straight man of the group. 

Bugs was always the wiseguy.  If he's not causing trouble himself, he's getting into it.  He's a far more active character as opposed to Mickey's more passive one.  Disney cartoons also tend to follow logic more closely while Looney Toones embrace the wacky and unpredictable side more.  You're far less likely to see Micky Mouse pull an entire car out of his pocket and ride away in it than you are to see Bugs do it.

True, also, let's  face it, cartoons  were  once considered  mostly  for  kids and  pre-teens. I think everyone from Walt to  Hanna-Babera  would be  shocked  at  what passes  for  cartoons  these  days, like  Family  Guy and  even The  Simpsons.

(No, it's not a Disney cartoon; it was made by Van Bueren, who didn't care much for copyrights.  Wink)

The other way around, actually. Cartoons were considered for adults until the 50's when animation began being produced for television. It's just that adults were generally more sophisticated back in the day, so no one cared to see gore, swearing and such. And even then, you have this being produced for the armed forces.

The only golden age-era cartoons that were considered purely for children were Casper and Little Audrey.

When I was in the military about ten years back, they were still using Goofy cartoons in the divers ed classes they taught.

Also, I always particularly liked these two quick scenes from Roger Rabbit:
Mickey and Bugs, together on screen.  As a young kid seeing this, my mind exploded with joy.

Although, this was better because I'm a bigger fan of Daffy and Donald.

I have one of the "Golden Collection" volumes. I also recently bought "Saturday Morning Cartoons of the 1970's Vol. 2," which features an episode of the old "Bugs Bunny/ Roadrunner" Show with the themes and bumpers. That was a nice surprise, since most repackaged shows don't get the DVD treatment. But this was a fixture on CBS for about fifteen years or more, so it's nice to see at least one episode again in this format.

Mickey Mouse.
Sheesh.
Never liked Mickey-even as a little kid.
He was like the kid who never got in trouble-brought a teacher an apple. A suck-ass.
Bugs-he was a rebel! Didn't give a rat's ass. Or in this case-a mouse's ass.

Heck-Bug's didn't have to even lift a finger-like the mutant's in BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES-he made his enemies fight each other.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
