This film combines live action/original animation and library animation. Mickey steals a magic hat from a Sorcerer and is put under a spell by the angry magi so that no one will recognize him until he finds his own magic within. While Mickey is on his quest, network news teams around the country desperately try to find the famous, beloved mouse who has mysteriously disappeared. On his quest, Mickey goes into the "Cheers" bar, meets up with the characters from "Family Ties", and winds up on Disneyland's Main Street the night before his Birthday celebration is to take place. It is there that he finds he has all the magic inside him that he will ever need. The spell is broken and the Birthday bash commences as the whole World celebrates the beloved Mickey Mouse. Roger rabbit also stars in this tv movie. Extra info-- Mickey Mouse's 60th Birthday special was being taped, and as his appearance in the show drawn close, Mickey find himself trying to decide how he should present himself to his audience. Rummaging through an old trunk, he find the magic hat from The Sorcerer's Apprentice segment of Fantasia and considered using it, but he was warned by the sorcerer who own the hat (who was surprisingly NOT Yensid) that he shouldn't be using other people's magic when he had his own. With that in mind, Mickey go out on stage along with his birthday cake, provided by Roger Rabbit, who realized just in time that he placed a stick of dynamite on the cake instead of a candle. In his attempt to put the dynamite out, Roger ended up destroying the set, so Mickey used the magic from the hat to repair the damage. The audience screamed for more, and Mickey agreed to do so, but when he does, he suddenly vanished! The sorcerer was furious that Mickey disobeyed his warning, and he punished the Mouse by casting a spell on him in which anyone he ran into fails to recognize him as Mickey Mouse. The Mouse was then returned to the real world, where he was found by Andy Keaton of Family Ties, who mistakenly believed him to be a good impression of the real thing. Andy showed Mickey off to Mallory and his mom, but they were not convinced, and even Andy turned the Mouse down. Dejected, Mickey was going to the bar from Cheers, only to realize he has no money to buy himself a drink. Then he sang the "Happy Birthday" song to Rebecca Howe and cheered her up so much that she took him to dinner and a movie. Meanwhile, The Walt Disney Company organized a search party to find the missing Mickey, which was reported on by a local news show. In the process, the reporters began to suspect Donald Duck after being told of how upset he was that he wasn't going to appear in Mickey's special. Their suspicions go even further when they find old footage of Donald doing his own version of The Mickey Mouse Club theme song, and Donald is soon arrested after he tries (unsuccessfully) to testify his innocence (he claimed that the kidnapper was either Minnie Mouse, "the guy who framed Roger Rabbit", the Wicked Witch, and Porky Pig). As they continue with their reports on the search, the reporters showed our various clip montages of Mickey and various tributes people were putting out to him. As the special neared its close, Mickey was returning to Disneyland, where a custodian was moping over the fact that he can't see any point in his profession if the guest of honor wasn't going to show up for his birthday party. Phylicia Rashad then sang a song about magic, with Mickey accompanying the song-and-dance number. At this point, the sorcerer reappeared and told Mickey that he's finally found his own magic inside him, and thus the spell was now broken. Just as the sorcerer exit, Roger rushed up and recognized Mickey. The news of Roger having "found" Mickey was brought to the news, and the innocent Donald was released from jail just in time to join Mickey's birthday celebration.
