Do All Aquarians Hate Mickey Mouse?

Filed in TAURUS, AQUARIUS

Mickey Mouse Wizards Apprentice

Every Aquarian I have ever known has – at the very least – an intense dislike of Mickey Mouse.  Why? Their reasons vary.

Now I have just read a New York Times  interview with the very Aquarius Kenneth Anger (avant-garde film maker, occultist, author of Hollywood Babylon) in which HE denounces Micky Mouse:

“…The thing is I view Mickey Mouse as a kind of demonic figure. It’s a little sprite or imp. I disdainfully reject the latest incarnation of Mickey Mouse, which just is a monstrosity. This pink-faced Mickey that they’ve tried to turn it into a little boy wearing some kind of mask or ears or something, trying to humanize it. He’s lost all of his mischievous, devilish qualities. He’s sort of the ceremonial doorman at Disneyland or Disneyworld. Mickey Mouse is a little creature you can hold in the palm of your hand. Nothing like the poor, suffering, underpaid teenagers who are inside those costumes. I’ve talked to some of them through the mouth of their costumes. I go there on a hot day and they’re sweating like swine. It’s torture!…”

If it helps: Micky Mouse is a Taurus.

But still…demonic?

Two things: Hollywood Babylon was such an influential book. It’s style influenced celebrity coverage today & did  it way before the net.

So, do Aquarians share a dislike of The Mouse?

Haha, funny / great topic. I am a 40 year old Aquarian and i have just admitted to myself, sometime in the past 3 months, that i was merely jealous of Mickey all this time. I realized i despised his character for seeming to just show up with no effort, no act and be accepted, loved, acclaimed and celebrated. As someone with NVLD i thought that was some kind of despicable trick. Were we all not trying to impress? I know i had/have to make great efforts. Or at least entertainers were supposed to right? Isn’t Mickey an entertainer? I… Read more »

FRITZ THE CAT is my favorite…
Mickey Mouse is too soft!

I don’t like cute characters, I love dangerous aggressive characters but that mouse is way getting on my nerves, must get a lot of rottweilers replacing the brooms and killed this bastard son of a mouse to death.

Felix The Cat was the world’s first cartoon superstar doing the silent era since 1919 until 1928 that his arch enemy Mickey Mouse came to town changed and ruined Hollywood forever. And poor Felix The Cat way forgotten and he’s my favourite character but not this terrible Mickey Mouse and its creator Walt Disney and his pointless ideas I couldn’t stand off and the Disney classics he did are not good. By the way for Felix fans fuck this mouse and get back to the good old silent days as well.

I agree, fuck the Mickey Mouse version and the Nicholas Cage version of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice. and neither as the old original Mickey Mouse & Friends cartoons. I like the original poem and the music. But not this stupid Mickey Mouse cartoon version of the story because it’s too cute and it did destroyed the real spirit of the story. Why not make the apprentice a young boy but not this Mickey Mouse shit! Love the Sorcerer and Not the Apprentice.

I hate Disney cartoons like Steamboat Willie and the rest of ’em are totally unfunny and the Fantasia segement ‘The Sorcerer’s Apprentice’ destroyed the real spirit of Johann Wolfgang Goethe’s popular poem and the Paul Dukas music both are good but the Mickey Mouse version ain’t terribly good for my point of view Fuck ’em. I love darker characters like Yensid The Sorcerer but not his stupid annoying mouse apprentice Mickey! and I hate the dream sequence but by the way lightning bolts is dangerous so stay away from the Mickey Mouse version please!!!

lol, wow… I find all this hatred towards a cartoon character extremely amusing, actually. I mean, it’s not like Mickey ever harmed anyone. >>;

Aqua mars and mercury. Loved Mickey as a child but also had scary dreams around the same time with him as some kind of monster.

Go figure.

Aquarius ascendant, have never liked Mickey (goody two shoes schmuck). Always liked Donald by far the best. Never liked Goofy either.

This has stirred a long ago memory of a high school debate. ‘That Mickey Mouse is subversive.’ I was on the affirmative and we won by a mile. We found all these war-time comics that were pure anti-German propagander.
I can’t say I’ve ever really given him much thought though. Just asked my aqua man what his thoughts were on MM, he just shrugged and said ‘What about him?’

Whilst away, a little boy mouse moved into my bedroom & slept in my bed! It knew it had a supply of food & water from my furry creature who was away with me. Too cute to trap but must relocate soon or he will relocate himself when his balls grow & has the urge to mate…..i hope. In the meantime, he’s living in luxury but not in bed anymore. Or he might go find a mate & tell her he has the best place for them to live & move her in 🙂 Needless to say my little creature,… Read more »

Now that you mention it, Mickey Mouse is pretty bloody annoying…his voice in particular

Well I am an Aquarius boy, and I like Mickey. I have to admit I dont get the fuss, he’s just a cartoon character. Maybe we have issues with the people who created him over the years …. but I think he’s iconic and I still love my MM watch with the moving arms ….
Maybe I’m not a real Aqua-boy? I was born on the cusp with Caprica ….

I used to get VPO when they’d put Mickey cartoons on instead of Donald’s when I was a child.

And the 70’s or was it 80’s Mickey Mouse Club members left me just as cold.

My dad really really dislikes him, along with Bing Crosby & camp men from British TV. Basically he thinks he’s an effete creep. My dad is a Gemini with strong Cancerian influences.

I’m a Gemini but totally indifferent.

theres some harsh mouse bashing going on here.

liked him as a kid.
ambivalent after the age of 6.

dont understand adults who obsessively collect items with his likeness…jewellery…t-shirts.

but i dont hate him.
have a soft spot for daffy duck.

So I have to ask, who else here thought the Mickey Mouse Club was like an evil cult of brainwashed children who smile nonstop because they were subject to a secret surgery that won’t let their faces snap back to natural expression??? I hated those effing ears. In fact I got in trouble because I kicked it off someone’s head when I was 8. It wasn’t the nicest thing I ever did, but those lobes were just asking for it…plus the kid who was wearing it had been whinging about Mickey all day long so I lost it. The worse… Read more »

Oh oh. AND I used to go around telling the other kids the Mickey Mouse Club was for P*ssies, GO Electric Company which I thought was way groovy and a bit more psychedelic than the fake happy scrappy crap at the Mouse Club.

It probably didn’t help that I was really into Voltes 5 which is like pre-Transformers, Japanese Anime and went stomping around in a yellow Superman tshirt. Or that I already secretly thought that Batman was hot.

YES! electric company I was cat woman all the way for me – but not the cartoon – eartha kitt.

YES! Another Voltes 5 devotee, amazing..we are the rare and the few UPV. But seriously it was the first Japanese cartoon that started to introduce a dramatic and emotionally expressive element to the story line so I like to think it had some kind of literary advantage…and oh, I wouldn’t mind a visit from the Batman. 🙂

While I was playing Catwoman… that suit is just kicking hot!

Matt, I guess it explains it all eh? haha

Okay, yes, I dug Fantasia too Matt, but it was really the Centaurs that brought the Party on, you know. All respect for your love of the Mouse, soz I’m just being vile about my own dislike. 🙂

I think mickey’s a dick. I like Robert Crumb. Libran

My dad – hated mickey – loved felix the cat, Fabulous Freak Brothers & Robert Crumb. Scorpio.

My mother – hates cartoons, thinks they’re inane – any of them. Scorpio/Sagg cusp.

Aqua likes his toons dark. Mickey need not apply.

I am Aqua and I think MM is lame, in fact I thought he was pretty stupid as a child only to be outdone by Minnie, however the Sorceror’s Apprentice skit was right up my alley…, or was it the musical score that accompanied it?

I used to be scared of MM. I used to think he had all kinds of messed up, sadistic, screwy things going on in the back of his cheeky smile. Totally more scared of him in “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”–you KNOW he uses the brooms to kill the sorcerer at some other point in life. You just do. XP I figure it’s because he seems to have no real outer personality but gets to do all sorts of clever trickster-related things with this crowd-appeasing smile. It’s all obviously enforced, in a way. <<. (Also, my mercury is in Aquarius.) The only… Read more »

I don’t dislike MM and I’m aqua. I am intrigued by his waxing and waning popularity however. This year (sometime – it was supposed to be March 2010 but got delayed) Fantasia gets released on Blu-Ray. I adore the film, and it’s sequel from 2000. Rumour has it the Salvador Dali – Walt Disney collaboration ‘Destino’ will be released with them. I know with Sorcerer’s Apprentice in the mix that this squeaky-voiced mouse will probably be boosted in the Disney marketing strategy. What fascinates me is how AA Milne’s characters became part of the Disney franchise and how they comfortably… Read more »

I saw Burton’s Alice and I have issues… I am a massive ‘Alice…’ fan and have at least 10 different editions heradventures in Wonderland or Through the Looking Glass. I don’t mind the premise of the film… I am just annoyed with them taking out all the ‘nonsense’. its like they tried to do it, but misunderstood the root of the nonsense (word plays on popular culture of the time and reverse logic puzzles) and just tried to make it kooky… or zany. *smacks forehead* I got in trouble from (now I think of it) 2 Caps that told me… Read more »

MM is yuck. Funnily enough, was thinking abot the Wizard’s Apprentice a la Disney yesterday and it’s probably the only Mickey Mouse outing I can stand. Perhaps bec. he gets a comeuppance. Or maybe it’s the cool music and the walking brooms.

..and the fact that he kept his mouth shut in ‘Sorcerer’s Apprentice’ didn’t hurt – no squeak-squeak

Micky is so outclassed by Bugs Bunny that he’s not worth the time of thinking about. Bugs Bunny is built to appeal to aquarians – eternally curious, clever, amusing and always uncatchable.

I agree with ‘Mickey Mouse is nothing’. Im and Aqua and Mickey mouse has never been on my radar. I dont consider him demonic, I just dont consider him at all. Definitely no attraction when I was child.

Is Mickey Mouse hatred about bad childhood associations on Kenneth Anger’s part – like how lots of kids are traumatised by clowns (milked by Stephen King and others).

Intrigued by this I called Dr. Aqua who is in some meeting with someone about something….

Dr Aqua:’Mickey Mouse is nothing’.

Ohhh I think Dr. Aqua is quietly disliking the Mouse, just admit it Aqua’s!! …… 😯

Barista darling, every time you write Dr. Aqua it makes me wonder what costume your Man wears when he goes about his business. Is kinda hot. I always think he’s kind of like a walking Xavier from XMen.

But then I have a thing for the Stig. So there you go..

Well I only have the Aqua Venus to vouch for but I can’t stand the little rodent. He’s creepier than Michael Jackson, insufferably smug and such a fat phoney – what’s with that constant fake smile and chipper demeanor? and let’s not even get started on the irritating voice. Bring on the ‘Ratsak’ I say…

He is a prissy little stuck-up, smug freak. His worst incarnation thus far is the new Fanclub digital cartoon show. He is smug AND unwatchable with his digital flickering… 🙂
