Product BackstoryJulius, baby! Daddys found you a brand new brain! exclaims a vibrantly villainous Dr. Frankenollie to his lumbering lout of a creation. The dog-eared creature stands several stories high, sporting formidable fangs and an undiscerning, giddy grin to match his violently vicious temperamentand this man-made monster seems pleased hes about to receive not just any brain, but that of Mickey Mouse. The atmospheric and action-packed horror-spoof Runaway Brain takes us to 1313 Lobotomy Lane, where a want ad promising one thousand dollars for a mindless days work has landed a strapped-for-cash Mickey in the clutches of Dr. Frankenollie, an orangutan with a lab coat and a taste for scientific skills of the sinister sort. Suddenly at the mercy of the deranged monkey doctor and his brutish beast, Mickey finds himself an unwilling participant in a maliciously mind-altering experiment of science-fiction proportions. And it seems the primate practitioner is a chimp of his wordthe good doctor hits the control panel and sets the cerebral switch in motion. As the contraptions power down with a low-level thrum, Mickeys confusion is quickly replaced with disbelief. Standing tall and muttering in his own voice, Mickey looks down at his hulking, monstrous bodythe bulky form previously belonging to Julius. That crazy gizmo really worked! he exclaims in dumbfounded panic. Suddenly a ravenous rodent springs from the laboratory debris, growling through gnarled teeth, frayed, ragged ears held high, yellowing, bloodshot eyes wild with rage. Inhabited by the monsters brain, its Mickeys formthough not in a form weve ever seen before.
Released in 1995, Runaway Brain was Mickey Mouses first appearance on the big screen since 1990s The Prince and the Pauper. Drawing inspiration from many angles, the film makes a fine Frankenstein parody, also giving a fond nod to its roots: Voiced by Kelsey Grammar, the unhinged Doctor Frankenollie is named in honor of Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston, two legendary animators belonging to Walt Disneys Nine Old Men. Additionally, the look of the daft doctor was inspired by Professor Ecks, a lunatic monkey scientist from the 1933 Mickey comic strip adventure, Blaggard Castle drawn by Floyd Gottfredson as a caricature of Boris Karloff as he appeared in the vintage 1932 horror film, The Old Dark House. The oversized monster Julius is clearly Mickeys nemesis, Pete, right down to his peg-leg. Its most valuable asset remains throughout: Runaway Brain stands as the sole Disney cartoon to completely alter Mickey Mouses beloved likenessin lieu of the solid head on his shoulders, that is. And what a changethis rampantly undomesticated, avidly reckless rodent monster puts the mild-mannered Mouse in a refreshingly ruthless light, an affirmation that a bit of a switch every now and again keeps the plucky heros wits about him, or at least only a good chase away. Capturing all the craziness of the Oscar nominated animated short, this new, must-have pair of Walt Disney Classics Collection pieces stands proud as shock-happy scientist and his ill-behaved, delightfully unruly creation. Mickeys always happy-go-lucky and chipper and pleasant finally, hes Mickey as weve never seen him beforeso wild and out of control and quirky, notes Patrick Romandy-Simmons, sculptor of the Monster Mickey piece. When I get really excited about a piece, I really throw myself into it. I did find myself doing the crazy Mickey voice . . . grunting and growling . . . to really feel the characteralso because Im partially crazy. Whether displaced or on the run from one brain or the other, Dr. Frankenollies Mickey Monster can appeal to the innermost Julius in everyone, serving as a reminder that even a mad mind can be a terrible thing to waste, but too much of a good brain is enough to make anybody crazy!
