"Mickey's Mechanical House" is an animated short originally featured in an episode of Mickey Mouse Works. It was later featured in the House of Mouse episode "House of Genius" as well as in Mickey's House of Villains.
This story for this cartoon is told in rhyme. Mickey's old house is ragged and broken all the time. He is fed up! So he finds a new house. It is brand new, just right for our mouse. It's all automatic from the tub to the phone, but Mickey finds out this house isn't home.
- The robot in the cartoon is actually the same robot that was featured in "Mars and Beyond", an episode of the Disneyland show. The footage was later reused for an episode of Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color featuring Ludwig Von Drake called "Inside Outer Space". The robot would also appear in House of Mouse and its spin-off film Mickey's House of Villains.
- There have been cartoons in which we see Mickey in his underwear, but this is first time we see him wearing tighty whities.
