Mickey's Mechanical House is a cartoon made by the Walt Disney Television Animation. It was originally released in 1999.[1] It was narrated by Monty Python member John Cleese.


Mickey Mouse keeps trying to sleep while living in an old, unrepaired house (creaky roof, loud drafts, noisy furnace, slamming window shutters), which constantly annoys him. Mickey decides to move out of it; he takes Pluto and runs down a sidewalk full of houses. Soon, he meets a salesman who is selling a modern and clean "electric house" where anything can be controlled by a push of a button on a remote control. Mickey, delighted that it was better than the other, buys the house and moves in it. At first, the mouse is happy with his new home and he got so obsessed by it he wanted to stay up all night to explore it, but the robotic servant wouldn't let him do so and after destroying the robot, it causes the equipment in the house to malfunction and makes him change his mind about the place and escapes before it collapses. Eventually, Mickey changes his values and returns to live in his old house.
