Life Size

  1. In the Disney Channel movie, Life Size with Tyra Banks, there is a very obvious hidden Michey. At the immediate beginning of the movie, it's a commercial for the Eve Dolls. The camera scrolls up past a fake moon, which has a distinct Mickey head in the craters of the moon. No idea how I managed to see this one. It was very accidental!

Zenon the Zequel

  1. In the Disney Channel Original Movie, Zenon the Zequel, there is a Hidden Mickey. I thought I was seeing things at first, but then I kept noticing throughout the scene, and I pretty much confirmed (to myself) that that was a HM I saw. Near the end of the movie, when Margie's father is telling the group of people what they did wrong, there is a piece of the set wall (it's quite huge) next to some space suits, in the corner, that has a HM on it. If you miss it the first time it's up, don't worry, cause it's on screen for (maybe) close to a minute in total (or more!). The HM is right-side up, no turning your head in an odd way or anything. In most of the scene it's in between the speaker and the addressee (the group of people), and sometimes its over the speaker's left shoulder. When I saw this, I just about screamed: There's a Hidden Mickey!

The Golden Girls

  1. In an episode of "The Golden Girls" (owned by Disney), Dorothy goes to a local audition for contestants on JEOPARDY! In the "classroom" where the auditions are help there is a chalk board.

Has anyone but me ever noticed that the last onion hanging down is actualy 3 onions... 1 large one and 2 smaller ones on top of it forming the tri-circle Mickey. If anyone doubts this, just watch, the onions are actualy connected!

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire

  1. Hidden Mickey on the stage of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire". ABC being a Disney co. could have placed this hidden Mickey on the set, if not then it is a remarkable look-alike. When the show fades to commercial and an overhead shot of the stage is shown notice the center circle where Regis and the contestant sit. There is a circle which forms the head and their two chairs form the ears. If you imagine it you can see it from the stage level angle also. See how the chairs are off centered. WOW!
    REPORTED: Mister Creatine 15 MAR 00
    The claim is that the center circle that Regis Philbin and the contestant are located is the head, and the chairs form the ears. I have to say that this is Wishful Thinking. First, Buena Vista TV must follow the set design defined by Celador Productions when they bought the rights to the show. So it is highly unlikely that the original British producers would have thought of a HM. Second, the chairs are not positioned in the correct place to even resemble a HM. The chairs' bases are inside the circle, not on the edge or outside. And third, the chairs themselves are much smaller than the large circle, thus not achieving the desired "ears to head" ratio seen in other HMs.

Disney Channel

  1. In the Disney Channel commercial where it shows Mickey in a submarine, there is a hidden Mickey on the right side of the sub when it shows Mickey. There are many colored lights and three of them make a tri-circle.
    REPORTED: Jerry Lakin 20 MAY 02
  2. I was watching T.V. one night and I spotted a Hidden Mickey. It is not exactly the tri-circle mickey, but it relates to Disneyland. During the 2000 Winter Holiday broadcast on the Disney Channel between commercials there is two girls having a snowball fight. In the backround you can see clearly a mountain thet resembles Matterhorn in Disneyland.
    REPORTED: Jonathan Zuniga 01 DEC 00
  3. I've seen bus ads/billboards for the Disney Channel w/ Tinkerbell and tagline "a movie every night @ 7:00" and the TV behind Tink has "ears."

  4. Right before a Disney movie is about to begin on the Disney Channel they show a scene in a castle with movie clips projected onto drapes as you enter the castle and leave it (over a balcony) the railing posts have Mickeys cut out of them.
    REPORTED: Gates Browne 28 SEP 97
  5. In the Disney Channel commerical with the Mickey posters, look at the gate. The circles make the Mickey symbol.
    REPORTED: Mickey 13 DEC 98
  6. On the Disney Channel, they have Vault Disney at night, and most nights, at 11:00 PM, there is Walt Disney Presents. As it's opening, there is a song about the wonderful world of color. Watch closely! After a shot of horseback riders making their jump, there is a shot with a background that looks like a kaleidoscope, and within the design are Mickey faces. It only lasts a moment, but is easy to see once you look.

    2. There is a Hidden Mickey on Home Improvement. I really don't watch the show but yesterday I saw one in the lamp shade on the table next to the couch in their house. It is a sort of western motif (like one you might see at Wilderness Lodge). The kids (I don't know thier names) were playing a board game with Al in this episode.

    3. I was watching "Home Improvement" (Owned by Disney) last night and I saw a hidden Mickey in one of the scenes. It was an older episode, the one when "Brad" shaves his hair on the sides and wears a ponytail and "Tim" gets mad at him. The scene was when Tim walks into Brads bedroom to talk to him and to tell him he is sorry for freaking out about the haircut. It is located on the wall and it is a white cut out of Mickey's ears and face with writing on it. It was unmistakable, even my kids saw it. I never thought to look for them on television shows!

    Disney Adventures
    1. While it is not at all odd to see Donald Duck guest-starring in one of the Disney Afternoon cartoons, it is another matter entirely to run into Mickey. In one of the episodes of 'Bonkers', Bonkers the Toon cop must rescue the kidnapped corporate icon - The Mouse. Mickey himself never appears in the cartoon and is always locked in a box or hidden behind a wall, but it is his unmistakable voice. The plot involves The Mouse (the name 'Mickey' is never used) being kidnapped and replaced by a disgruntled rat, who disguises himself in the typical Mickey-wear of red shorts/yellow buttons/white gloves. Although this is not a Hidden Mickey of the typical type, the rarity of Mickey's appearances in this Disney medium makes it of note.
