Runaway Brain (1995)
Runaway Brain is an animated short film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation Paris, France, and starring Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse. In the short, Mickey is desperate to earn money to pay for an anniversary gift for Minnie. He applies as a lab assistant for Dr. Frankenollie, but finds he is looking for a donor to switch brains with the monster he created. Featuring animation by animator Andreas Deja, it was first released in 1995 attached to North American theatrical showings of A Kid in King Arthur's Court and in 1996 attached to international theatrical showings of A Goofy Movie. It would be the final original Mickey Mouse theatrical animated short until Get a Horse! in 2013.
Although receiving a controversial reception among audiences, the animation was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film at the 68th Academy Awards (ending up losing to the Wallace and Gromit short A Close Shave).
