So this was a thing at one point:

Footage from the only known existing copy of the game.

After the release of "Mickey Mania" in 1994, the success of the
game led us to start developing a sequel.

During development however, the opportunity to make a game
based on the upcoming "Toy Story" movie made more
sense to ourselves and Disney, so "Mickey Mania 2" was
cancelled so we could focus on "Toy Story" instead.

The footage here is the only demo that exists for Mickey Mania 2.

It's obviously a work in progress with no enemies,
but it gives an impression of where the game was headed.


In a really eerie coincidence, I managed to find and recover some background paintings from an old snapshot of Traveller's Tales website... the morning of the same day in which this video was published! (Maybe he saw my attempts to retrieve unexistant Mickey Mania files from the current server and remembered about this?)

These include a couple of backgrounds for the desert level (which I was going to ask about but I guess there's no need for that anymore) as well as some others that I don't remember seeing in the first game (then again, I haven't tried the PlayStation version, which I think added a few levels).

Enjoy.

Wanted to post in this thread for the longest time, I absolutely love ALL of this. Amazing to see so much gorgeous artwork that was going to appear in this game before cancellation. TT seriously had some incredible programmers that weren't hesitant to try and push the genesis system to its limits.
