The Mickey Mouse "Universe" Guide

by David Gerstein

This document is © 1996 David Gerstein.

	This group of lists is intended to establish various locations
in which Mouse stories have been set, indicate heroes and villains
most likely to appear in those places, and give other important
information about the locations.  The lists arrange the information in
alphabetical order.  Pieces of information labeled with an asterisk
(*) refer to stories not plotted by Floyd Gottfredson: post-1943
newspaper strips (beginning with 1944's "Pluto the Spy Catcher") and
Carl Barks and Romano Scarpa comic book stories.  Please note: A
"place" is a large area such as a city or part of a country, whereas a
"site" is a smaller location in a place: for example, Mount Fishflake,
a site, is at the outer edges of Mouseton, a place.

	All newspaper strip-continuity stories referred to in this
guide are given titles.  The titles I have used are the "official"
American titles for the stories, as published in Mickey Mouse in Color
(Prescott: Another Rainbow Publishing, 1988).  Untitled Sunday gag
pages that are not part of larger stories have been noted by date.

	A very few stories have only been available to me in German
editions.  As pertaining to those stories, I have given a few
characters' names as translated directly from German; those cases are
noted as they occur (mainly in 1930-31 stories).  The names may or may
not be the same as the English ones.

	The abbreviations of American comic book titles used here
(only used for stories that made their first American appearances in
comic books) are as follows:

	MM:  Mickey Mouse.
	MMOS:  Mickey Mouse [Four Color] One-Shot.
	M+D:  Mickey and Donald.
	WDC:  Walt Disney's Comics and Stories.

	IMPORTANT INFORMATION: The Mouseton area is the center of the
Mouse universe as originally developed by Floyd Gottfredson.  The name
"Mouseton" was apparently originated by Disney Comics for new stories
in 1990, but has been used in "recap" panels for serialized
Gottfredson stories reprinted since then.  Gottfredson referred to the
town as simply "Hometown" in early strips, then briefly used
"Mouseville"; however, that name has been used extensively for the
home town of Paul Terry's Mighty Mouse in recent years, so it isn't
used by Disney today.
	Mousepark Villa no longer exists; after being created through
magical means at the site of the city dump, it was magically
demolished as well.
	The division of the Disney Studio in Mouseton is treated as a
live-action studio at which Mickey occasionally works with an acting
troupe, thus ‘explaining' his appearances in films.  But just because
the films in which Mickey acts portray fabricated stories, that
doesn't mean that the actors aren't like the personalities they play.
For example, Friday, an authentic bushman from an island near Africa,
came to act at the studio in "Mickey Mouse Meets Robinson Crusoe."
Despite the fact that the Crusoe story that was shown in the strip
didn't "really" occur, Friday's friendship with Mickey was, naturally,
referred to as fact in the later story, "An Education for Thursday".
(Strangely, the real "offscreen" identity of Robinson Crusoe himself
in "Mickey Mouse Meets Robinson Crusoe" is never given!)
	The Liberty Belle Hotel is not in Mouseton; it is a short trip
away.  The town it is actually in is never mentioned, but is
presumably not too far from Webfoot County. (Mickey's train trip there
in the story "Bellhop Detective" appeared to be only a brief journey
from Mouseton.)
	Blaggard Mansion was partly blown up at the conclusion of
"Blaggard Castle," leaving some of it wrecked.  Professors Ecks,
Doublex, and Triplex were hypnotically brainwashed and reformed, but
according to recent stories produced by the Disney Studio, they
eventually turned back to crime.
	Silas Perkins is referred to as Silas "Haymow" in one panel of
"Mickey Mouse Outwits the Phantom Blot" (in the 7/29/39 strip).  The
name was obviously relettered between original writing and
publication, but whoever did it didn't change the character's name
anywhere else.  The name Perkins stands.
	In several of the earliest stories Mickey lives and works at
Minnie's father's farm.  The farm -- and Minnie's family -- didn't
appear again after the first year of the strip.
	Madeline Mouse in 1941's "Love Trouble" (who briefly calls
herself Millicent Van Giltmouse) is identified as being Mickey's
"cousin from the city."  Exactly which city is meant is never
identified, but it presumably isn't too far from Mouseton as she takes
a train, not a flight, to return there.  For practical purposes, she
is listed among Mouseton area residents here.
	Buster the bacteria was enlarged, using a special device, from
invisible size to four feet in height.  However, he was later shrunken
back to normal size.
	The Mammoth Circus and the Canas Carnival are presumably
stationed only occasionally in Mouseton, but for practical purposes
are listed here.

	IMPORTANT STORIES OCCURRING HERE: Nearly all Floyd Gottfredson
Mickey Mouse stories are set at least partly in the Mouseton area; in
this way, they differ from the Barks Duck stories, many of which begin
and end in other countries or areas.  At the present time, I will
refrain from listing all the newspaper strip stories with Mouseton
settings; the list would contain nearly every Gottfredson story.
	The comic book stories referred to in section (A) are: MM
254-55 ("Kali's Nail") and M+D 6-8 ("The Blot's Double Mystery") by
Romano Scarpa, and MMOS 79 ("The Riddle of the Red Hat") by Carl
Barks.


(B)  ECOLOGY, WILDERNESS AND "NATURE"-THEME AREAS

	PLACES: [unidentified] Campground ("Mickey Mouse and the
Gypsies"), Camp Phooey ("Unhappy Campers"), Midwest (exact location
unspecified, "The Black Crow Mystery"), Sloppy Hollow ("Dr. Oofgay's
Secret Serum").

	IMPORTANT SITES: Blimp Farm ("The Black Crow Mystery"), Dusty
Lake ("Dr. Oofgay's Secret Serum"), Gypsy Campground ("Mickey Mouse
and the Gypsies"), [unnamed] Lake ("Mickey Mouse and the Gypsies").

	NATIVE HEROES: Mr. and Mrs. Blimp ("The Black Crow Mystery"),
Farmer Reutabaga ("The Black Crow Mystery"), [various] Farmers ("The
Black Crow Mystery"), Kitty Reutabaga ("The Black Crow Mystery"),
Dr. Oofgay ("Dr. Oofgay's Secret Serum").

	NATIVE VILLAINS OR ANTAGONISTS: [Trained] Bear ("Mickey Mouse
and the Gypsies"), The Crow (actually a disguised madman, "The Black
Crow Mystery"), Fish Warden ("Dr. Oofgay's Secret Serum"), [unnamed]
Gypsies ("Mickey Mouse and the Gypsies"), Gypsy Queen ("Mickey Mouse
and the Gypsies"), Zingo ("Mickey Mouse and the Gypsies").

	IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Dr. Oofgay, who experiments with
medicine, often tests it on the animals of Dusty Lake.  Where he has
his home and laboratory is unknown, but presumably not far away from
Dusty Lake.  (He has a German accent, but a scientist still owning a
home in Europe would hardly travel all the way to this country just
for the resources of rural Sloppy Hollow!)
	The lake at which Mickey, Minnie, Clarabelle, and Horace met
the Gypsies in the 1931 adventure "Mickey Mouse and the Gypsies" is
never named, but it could also be Dusty Lake.  Some of the Gypsies are
not individually hostile to Mickey and his friends; however, I have
classed all the Gypsies as villains because, under orders from their
Queen, they do all fight against Mickey (some of them unwillingly).
The Queen and her accomplice Zingo can be considered far more evil
than the others.
	At one point during World War II Mickey worked on the Blimp
Farm, which was not located near Mouseton but in a rural area never
identified.  The local villain, the Black Crow, was actually a
disguised person who, due to a psychotic hatred for farmers, dressed
as a huge corn-eating bird and made arson attacks on farms.  He was
eventually captured.


	IMPORTANT STORIES OCCURRING HERE: "The Black Crow Mystery",
"Dr. Oofgay's Secret Serum", "Mickey Mouse and the Gypsies", "Unhappy
Campers".


(C)  OUTER SPACE AND STRATOSPHERIC AREAS

	PLACES: Be-Junior ("Be-Junior and the Aints"*), Plunderville
("The Mail Pilot"), Sky Island ("Island in the Sky"), Unnlax ("Hoosat

	NATIVE VILLAINS OR ANTAGONISTS: Air Pirates ("The Mail
Pilot").

	IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Plunderville was a miniature village
inside a huge pirate dirigible run by Sylvester Shyster.  In the story
"The Mail Pilot" Mickey captured Shyster, Pete, and the entire crew of
pirates and brought the dirigible to earth, at which point
Plunderville presumably ceased to exist.  (Note: A single strip in
"The Mail Pilot" accidentally refers to the village as ‘Plunderland,'
but this is the letterer's error.)

	IMPORTANT STORIES OCCURING HERE: "Be-Junior and the Aints"*,
"Hoosat from Another Planet"*, "Island in the Sky", "The Mail Pilot".

frontier character and ancestor of modern villain Eli Squinch, was a
member of a wagon train also containing Clarabelle Cow's pioneer
ancestor Durham Cow.  During the comic story "Race for Riches,"
Clarabelle reveals that Durham carried the Cow name to the American
West Coast, where he later passed away (leaving a treasure that Mickey
and Horace would later dig up).
	Mickey, transported back in time in the supernatural Haunted
Latitudes, met Greatbeard the Pirate (an ancestor of Pete) in the
story, "The Pirate Ghostship".  Greatbeard died at the conclusion of
this story: absconding with a treasure chest, he was buried under
lava.

Mousepotamia in a 1950 strip sequence.  Their appearance here
contradicts all their other comic appearances.
	It is not known if Moook the Tibetan genie (see category J)
was once a resident of Genieland.

going under the name of Bill Shakespeare and becoming the priest to a
tribe of local cannibals.  The cannibals themselves later became
friends of Mickey, abandoning their original plans to devour him.  The
Cannibal King was given the name "King Kokonut" in some merchandise
items in the mid-1930s which featured him; however, this name never
appeared in comics.

Gulch"), [unnamed German] Professor ("The Bar-None Ranch"), Two-Finger
Frank ("Billy the Mouse"), Vigilante Leader ("Sheriff of Nugget
Gulch"), Wolf Barker ("Lair of Wolf Barker").

	IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Minnie's Uncle Mortimer Mouse, a cattle
mogul, owns several ranches; one in this country (in Inferno Gulch)
and one in Sydney, Australia.  Uncle Mortimer's Australian connections
have never been described or used as the focus for a story in
newspaper strips or comic books.
	It is unknown whether Minnie's Aunt Matilda Mouse in Nugget
Gulch is any relation to Minnie's Uncle Mortimer in Inferno Gulch.
Minnie's uncle in Nugget Gulch is frequently mentioned in "The Sheriff
of Nugget Gulch," but never seen or called by name.  The bibliography
at the end of Mickey Mouse in Color (Another Rainbow Publishing:
Prescott, 1988) erroneously states that "Sheriff of Nugget Gulch"
takes place on Uncle Mortimer's ranch; it does not, and Aunt Matilda's
(and the unknown uncle's) home does not seem to be adjoining a ranch
at all in that story.
	Handlebar Hank Hawkins is occasionally referred to as
Handlebar Harry during the story "The Bar-None Ranch".  This is
obviously the letterer's mistake; for the majority of the story, the
character is called Hank.

	IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Minnie Mouse has American Indian
friends on the Palumawalsy Indian reservation.  She boarded there
while Mickey was a logger at the Hidden River Logging Company.  Minnie
disguised herself as an Indian for some of that time, and tribe
members played along with her ruse to keep Mickey from finding out she
had followed him to Hidden River.  Minnie gave herself the name
"Little Star" during that time.
	The Mounted Police spent a great deal of time trailing Mickey
during the story "The Great Orphanage Robbery," but this was not
corrupt behavior on their part; Mickey had been framed for a theft by
Sylvester Shyster, so was taken for a criminal by the Mounties.

of Mickey's friend Captain Churchmouse.  Gifted with an understanding
of human speech (although unable to speak himself), Spooks sometimes
lives at home in the jungle (where Mickey left him) and sometimes
returns to Tom Timmins' home in Nairobi (near the jungle) where he can
join the Churchmouse family in their travels.  The story "In Search of
