Update 6/30/12 If it wasn’t for that pesky Haunted Mansion series, the Disney Classic Collection may be the most anticipated set among Disney fans. So imagine the excitement when these images showed up in the window at D-Street Anaheim! Zoe snapped us some pictures that give us a look at most of the set. (Clarabell the Cow and Donald Duck have already been shown to us by Disney)

 

Minnie MouseFirst Appearence: Plane Crazy (1928)

She appears in the Kingdom Hearts video game series as the queen of Disney Castle, with Mickey serving as the king and her husband.

 

 

Pluto


First Appearance: The Chain Gang (1930)Pluto is considered one of the first Disney characters to break out of the “rubber hose and circle” formula style the studio had relied on; the dog’s design gave him the appearance of actually being round instead of flat.

 

Mickey MouseFirst Appearance: Steamboat Willie (1928)

Walt Disney himself voiced Mickey until 1947. Bret Iwan is the current man behind the voice.

 

Dippy Dawg (Goofy)First Appearance: Mickey’s Revue 1932

By his seventh appearance, in Orphan’s Benefit first released on August 11, 1934, he gained the new name “Goofy” and became a regular member of the gang along with two other new characters: Donald Duck and Clara Cluck.

 

Horace HorsecollarFirst Appearance: The Plow Boy (1929)

He appeared frequently from 1930 to 1932 and less frequently afterward, making his final classic-era cartoon in 1942. Horace was given small cameos in Mickey’s Christmas Carol (1983) and Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988).

 

Gideon GoatNot 100% sure about this one, there seem to to be a few different goats in early Disney cartoon history and in my research, this one was only in comics. But the horns and glasses point to Gideon.

Gideon Goat was a supporting character in the Mickey Mouse comic strips of the 1930s. Gideon first appeared in the 1930 Mickey Mouse Book #1.

 

Clara CluckFirst Appearance: Orphan’s Benefit (1934)

Clara’s singing is meant to be a caricature of the Bel Canto style of Opera singing popular at the time of her appearance.

 

PeteFirst Appearance: Alice Solves the Puzzle (1925)

Pete is the oldest continuing Disney character, having debuted three years before Mickey Mouse. in the cartoon

 

Peter Pig
(May also be Percy Pig?)First Appearance: The Wise Little Hen (1934)Peter Pig only appeared in animation again in The Band Concert and was used in various Disney comics as well. He also made a brief cameo in 1988’s Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

 

Clarabell the CowFirst Appearance: Plane Crazy (1928)

Often paired with Horace Horsecollar, she sometimes was the love interest of Goofy.

 

 

Donald Duck
First Appearance: The Wise Little Hen (1934)

He has appeared in more films than any other Disney character and is the fifth most published comic book character in the world after Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, and Wolverine.

 

 

Oswald
Mystery Chaser


It had to be Oswald. Ever since we saw the bunny ears introduced… it had to be Oswald!

Well the missing one looks to be a pig. Perhaps Peter Pig?

Although thinking about it he looks more like Percy Pig.

GREAT character selection for this set! It would be cool if they slipped in Oswald on long ear mold as the chaser!

Well Annemarie, I was talking about a variant that was going to be used but was changed around mid September. Now it’s going into a future set. :)
