Whether we are talking about the intoxicating additions to its amusement parks or the countless times Mickey Mouse got smashed, Disney has definitely maintained a tight-lipped reputation when it comes to alcohol. People can now consume these drinks in some theme parks, but how many times have we seen Disney characters go to town at bars or pubs? After all, some of the classic Disney films are memorable simply because of “drunk scenes.” For today, let’s take a closer look at some more infamous moments when Disney characters got drunk on-screen.
Looking at You, Mister Mouse
Not even the lovable, chubby-cheeked mascot could escape drunkenness. Portraying an outlaw in The Gallopin’ Gaucho (1928), one of his first big-time full-color appearances, Micky Mouse, strolls into a saloon before lighting up his cigar. After downing some beer, he begins to flirt with his sweetheart Minnie Mouse by sweeping her into a tango. Although he tries to pursue his lady love, Mickey realizes his ostrich steed (yes, you read that correctly) is incredibly drunk.
Poor Pluto Got Plastered
Even Mickey’s beloved pet Pluto isn’t safe from intoxication. After settling down with a lady dog in Pluto’s Quin-puplets (1937), Pluto becomes the father of quintuplet puppies, but his resilience begins to wear thin. Once babysitting his children proves to be too difficult, the pooch thrusts his open mouth under a keg of moonshine and starts to chug like a frat boy. Who thought dogs had it in them?
Toasting to the Children
In Disney’s classic love story Sleeping Beauty (1959), Stefan, father of the titular character, and Hubert, father of Prince Phillip, toast to their future children’s betrothed marriage. In the midst of their song and merriment, both kings get a little tipsy, but their mandolin-playing assistant steals the show with his hiccupping intoxication. Let’s just say the wine flowed a little too freely in this scene.
Seeking Treatment for Alcohol Abuse or Alcoholism
Alcohol withdrawal can easily be one of the most frightening aspects of healing.
