    Sure, the premise is horrifying from a modern perspective, but it’s still brilliant storytelling and animation.

    “Mickey Mouse proudly brought to you by the folks at Monsanto”

  3. Leslie Kuss says:

    After realizing poisons only made the bug problem worse, Mickey bought a new broom, switched to organic practices and gardened happily ever after.

  4. Reading Dirt says:

    Toxic pesticides, from a bug’s point of view. Who can blame them for going to war against the guy who has been gassing them with neurotoxins? (Or in those days, arsenic was often the pesticide of choice.)

    Of course it was all a dream…
