TikTok users have been captivated by the fictional ‘demise’ Mickey Mouse with new videos, leading to a surge of videos on the platform exploring this theme. Despite the viral trend, the iconic Disney mascot remains very much alive and continues his escapades in the Disney+ animated series “The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse.”
The trend involves TikTokers filming their reactions to searching “What killed Mickey Mouse?” on Google. While the search yields no factual results, it often leads to fan-made narratives about Mickey Mouse’s supposed ‘end,’ which are typically humorous takes on exaggerated cartoon plots.
On the Fandom Wiki, particularly within its List of Deaths Wiki — a resource documenting fictional deaths in movies, series, and games — Mickey Mouse is subjected to various ‘death scenarios’ in “The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse.” These imagined fatalities range from his heart exploding to being crushed by a falling tower. Other scenarios include disintegration, either from separation from Minnie or being yelled at by the Beast. However, in these fictional accounts, Mickey Mouse is always resurrected following his disintegration.
It’s important to note that this ‘death list’ on Fandom Wiki is not to be taken as a serious portrayal. Rather, it’s a creative compilation of all the potential death scenes the characters encounter throughout the episodes of the show, embracing the whimsical and fantastical nature of cartoon storytelling.
