New Mickey shorts probably wouldn't do well with the Mouse in his current dimensions, which was the nob of my gist. Mickey started out as a rebel, a trouble maker, and he could be one again, if Disney would only allow him to loosen up. If Mickey and the Gang are to successfully take on the likes of SpongeBob, they would need to be revamped and updated for a 21st century audience. Unfortunately, that just isn't where the Disney execs' heads are at right now. Animation has taken a backseat to action shows and live action kidcoms.
