    That's.....uncanny. As uncanny as the Mickey Mouse doppelgangers.

    That's strange. NBC first used the chimes in 1929, so it's very possible that this was a reference/easter egg.

    They also appeared in the Sniffles short "Bedtime for Sniffles" (from Warner Bros.).

    The history of NBC's chimes explains everything to a point. Then simply understanding how things develop fills in the gaps. Plus the sequence of notes is appealing. It is catchy. I doubt there is a clever conspiracy nodding at something of significance.

    BTW, no one had any idea how big Micky Mouse would become. There have been other mouse characters in cartoon history. I guess mice were more common to everyday life in those times or because it was a smaller world (depending on how you view it) all it may have taken was for one person to use a mouse character and for everyone else to associate it with cartoon animation thereafter.

    The NBC chimes were an integral part of daily life for everybody who had a radio in the 30s and beyond. It's not strange at all that they'd have found their way into a cartoon. Mickey Mouse WAS very big in 1934, as big a star as Garbo, and it would be surprising if Disney didn't sue.
