Mickey's Lips[edit]

This short was black & white. So I seriously doubt that Mickey had orange lips in the film proper. Perhaps the article means to refer to posters or some other related material? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 18.252.7.52 (talk) 07:18, 4 April 2007 (UTC).

The Blackface article says that it was colored that way on an advertising poster, I'll update this page to reflect that. You're right that it wouldn't make sense in a black and white film. -- Atamasama 18:48, 21 August 2007 (UTC)


The poster for this cartoon clearly shows the orange lips, and 'black face' I'll link to the poster, as I am also framing out the page with content to convert from stub to full page.

Controversy section[edit]

While raising some valid points, I feel that this section is a bit off-topic, considering this article is supposed to be about this specific cartoon, not Disney's entire oeuvre. Brutannica (talk) 05:08, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, i agree, even if the information is probably true, its feels pretty off-topic. I did not delate the information, but i added what page you can find the information on, as i think its wrong to cite the WHOLE book. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.234.88.227 (talk) 13:19, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, i took out the information, plus one of Walts daughters called the book garbage, so im not sure its an realiable source — Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.162.177.72 (talk) 11:29, 14 October 2013 (UTC)

I just delated the controversy section as the whole section is redurant and irrelevant, every little bit of it. I also added some information to the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.162.177.72 (talk) 10:47, 15 October 2013 (UTC)

  • Brutannica, the section was off-topic, and the sole source appears to discuss Disney's cultural attitudes without specifically referencing this cartoon, so the connection was a bit of a stretch. I've rewritten the section with reliable sources. The intervening edits and comments here emanated from a disruptive IP, now blocked for three months. JNW (talk) 13:25, 15 October 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, just saw that now. Thanks for reverting the vandalism, saves me the work of having to do it. I was in two minds on the information about Walt Disney, but you are probably right that it should not be on the article, plus the information can be found on the Walt Disney article, so delating that information are not that huge of a loss. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.234.88.227 (talk) 16:09, 16 October 2013 (UTC)
