New Mickey Mouse Short with a Scooter!

New Mickey Mouse Shorts Scooter Vespa

A new series of shorts premiered in June this year on the Disney Channel and one of them is all scooter. It’s called “Croissant de Triomphe” and the heroic scooter makes the most adorable noises I’ve ever heard come out of any bike . . . animated or real.

Let’s hope that there are more French Mickey Mouse shorts and scooter toys are not far behind.

To check out the background story on the shorts here .

And watch “Croissant de Triomphe” here .

A Rare Bit O’Swag:
Vintage Motul Waterslide Decal

I have always loved vintage waterslides. I have a vague recollection of applying them to my bicycle when I was very small. Gosh that dates me! Anyhoo, here is a prime specimen spotted on eBay recently. If you’d like to wallow in a little more vintage goodness (and some rather randy imagery), click below.

I think the little metal scooter is pretty well done, actually. Maybe you could buy the whole lot and give the bears to someone who likes them. Oh wait – I just found the price: 175 Euros. Ouch..
