This Mickey Mouse is an animontronic toy made by Worlds of Wonder in 1985. He is very similar to World of Wonder’s classic toy Teddy Ruxpin.Mickey Mouse was animated by a cassette deck in his back. Mickey moved his eyes, nose, and jaw to a pre-recorded cassette tape, specially coded with animation signals.  The cassettes included a book to follow along.

World of Wonder made at least three extra outfits for Mickey. These were sold separately under the WOW label named “Mickey’s Costume Closet”

  • The Sorcerer/Apprentice outfit from Fantasia – Consists of a sorcerer conical hat, sorcerer robe and pointy reddish brown shoes.
  • The Slumber/Sleeper outfit – Consists of a bathrobe, slippers, nightshirt and night cap.
  • The Bandleader outfit The unverified contents looks to be bandleader Jacket, bandleader hat, blue pants, and brown shoes.

Worlds of Wonder made 13 stories to animate Mickey:

  1. Impossible Journey
  2. Magic Boomerang
  3. Little Lost elephant
  4. Missing Meatball
  5. Littlest Viking
  6. Goofy’s last waltz
  7. Secret of the silver mine
  8. Mystery in Paris
  9. Moose on the loose
  10. City beneath the sand
  11. Follow that ghost
  12. Secret Island
  13. Great kite caper

    Do you know of anyone in the UK who can fix Mickey and Goofy. I have just taken mine out of the loft after 20 years and Mickey is not working properly.

      Hello. I do not know of any repair specialists in the uk; they all seem to be located in the United States for some reason. I would not let the Atlantic ocean stop you in your quest to get your toys repaired! It is a simple matter of shipping. Shipping costs will be a little more with you being overseas – but still worth it! Give a repair specialist an email and arrange to get you WOW toy fixed today.
