In the tradition of The Prince and the Pauper and Mickey’s Christmas Carol, Disney’s top stars dive back into wild spoofs of great literature! Donald meets demons in the perilous past — then Mickey gets roboticized in the far-flung future!

First, it’s Goethe… Duckburg style! Long ago in medieval Europe, alchemist “Dr. Donaldus Faustus” (Donald Duck) can’t stand the feud between his uncle, Duke Scrooge MacDuich, and the brawling Beagle Barons. Donald turns to wacky Witch Hazel and demons of the underworld to help him make peace… but these magic misfits just might prefer war!

Next, in a retelling of Fritz Lang’s classic film, the future city of “Mousetropolis” is powered by the world’s highest-tech factory. But that factory runs on the low-tech muscle of poverty-stricken peasants… and “undercover boss” Mictor (Mickey Mouse) discovers a plot to replace them with robots if they object! The Phantom Blot is in charge—and Minnie’s next in line to go metal!
