Mickey's Mad House

Here's a great piece of art from the D23 calendar for 2010: Mickey's Mad House.

In 1976, years before California Adventure was misconceived, Imagineer Ward Kimball designed this funky little mad mouse coaster into an indoor dark ride attraction. Think Mulholland Madness fully fleshed out with a story and indoor special effects.

In fact, keep thinking about Mulholland Madness- this concept would be a great replacement instead of Goofy's Sky School. As the Paradise Pier makeover continues, its clear the Imagineers believe you can never have too much Mickey in this park. Guess it balances out the Pixar invasion going on!
