As many of you know my daughter Maeven has a huge love for Mickey Mouse and loves here morning times of watching the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. I decided the other day that I needed to introduce her to old school Mickey cartoons that I got to watch when I was a kid. You know the old ones like Mickey’s camper and the one where Mickey, Donald, and Goofy hunt ghosts. So I began looking online and found that Disney really doesn’t have any current dvd’s of the cartoons I remember. Evidently they released two large collections in 2001 but the only way you can get them is on ebay. So, that’s what I set out to do…find them on ebay!
After much searching I thought I had found the best deal and ordered my sweet baby girl her first collection of old school Mickey. This evening when I returned home from the Rec Center I found a box waiting on me in the mail. When I opened this box, I was excited to see my dvd there and was hoping to watch a few cartoons with Maeven right away. Yet, in my excitement I noticed something was wrong. I could read words like “Walt Disney” and “Mickey Mouse” on the cover, yet the majority of the cover was in Portuguese! Surely this was not the Mickey Mouse dvd I ordered!!!
I hurriedly hopped on my computer and went to my ebay acount. Even though the main description clearly said this was a region 1 dvd, their at the bottom of the page it said it was from Brazil! Although it reassured me that it should play on a USA dvd player and be in English, I just couldn’t bring myself to tear off the shrink wrap. So, I did what any smart person would do…and relisted it on ebay and hope to make my money back. Don’t worry I clearly labled it Brazilian!
Lastly, if you would like an authentic Disney dvd from Brazil about Mickey Mouse….please let me know!
