A 1990 short film from Disney loosely adapting Mark Twain's The Prince and the Pauper, starring Mickey Mouse as the pauper. It was shown in theatres with The Rescuers Down Under. The film served as the setting of the final level of the video game Mickey Mania.
Tropes Used By The Film:
- Awesome Moment of Crowning
- British Stuffiness: Horace as the prince's teacher.
- The Cameo: Clarabelle as a peasant woman.
- Fake King: Pete's plan with Pauper!Mickey.
- Fat Bastard: Guess.
- Goofy Print Underwear: Sported by both Pete and Goofy.
- He Who Must Not Be Seen: The king.
- Humiliation Conga: Pete and his henchmen. Firstly the real prince shows up just as Mickey is about to be crowned, outing Pete as a treasonous would-be usurper, then a battle ensues where Pete and his whole freaking guard get their butts handed to them by Mickey, Donald and Goofy. And if that wasn't humiliating enough, Pete endures an incredibly embarrassing moment in front of the whole court and exits by being caught up in a chandelier and crashing through a stained glass window, his frilly underwear still on show.
- The Late Middle Ages
- Prince and Pauper: Duh.
- Mooks: Pete has an army of weasel soldiers; lifted from The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad.
- Wicked Weasel: As the previous example said they appear as Pete's henchmen.
- Token Human: The trumpeters.
- Took a Level In Badass: The film has what is probably one of the most sinister and least bumbling incarnations of Pete ever.
