The Darker Side of Mickey – Day 129

Here is a revised Mickey Mouse vintage Pez dispenser. I pulled this board out for 2 reasons. The simplest one was that Mickey’s tongue is red and it slightly interacts with the red board. And the second reason was that the board broke in such a way it looks like stalactites and stalagmites hanging from the ceiling and floor of a cave. If you look closely you can also see a monster or demon behind Mickey with yellow horns. I felt that in general Mickey Mouse is considered to be a happy and welcoming character, but on the flipside a cave with a monster in it seems like Hell. So the conversation that this piece brought to my attention is that sometimes from the outside, people look like they have their life in order, but when they get home (to their cave) their demons and real problems emerge.
