Mickey's Man Friday

by Nicholas Sammond

In this 1935, Walt Disney Production reimagines Robinson Crusoe with Mickey as the minstrel castaway and Friday as his loyal servant/pet, who defends him from ravening cannibals in the mode of 1930s racist caricature. This cartoon is another example of the whitening of Mickey Mouse.

Mickey's Man Friday

Disney's favorite minstrel has another run-in with the natives.
