"Once Upon an Apple" is the nineteenth episode of The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse.

Plot

Mickey’s quest to make everyone smile hits a snag when he meets a Wicked Witch bent on delivering poison apples to the fairest one in the land.

Synopsis

Mickey Mouse wakes up singing a 1980’s-infused song called "Giving the Love" as he goes out on the town to make smiles, which strengthen his heart. Among his clients are J. Thaddeus Toad, and Cinderella, with Mickey replacing her glass slippers with glass boots.

In a rapid-fire succession of cameos, Mickey also helps Horace Horsecollar and the Cheshire Cat. Passing an alleyway, we pass through the castle where the Evil Queen, disguised as an old peddler woman, dips an apple in poison brew and then heads out to give it to Snow White. Stopped at a crossing, Mickey sees her and decides to help an elder cross the road. The Evil Queen is none too pleased and tries to get rid of Mickey by giving him one of the poisoned apples. He returns in a flash with a fresh pie and the Queen takes a bite, after which Mickey reveals he used the apple she gave him to make it.

The Evil Queen awakens in her bedchamber sometime later and returns to try and murder her stepdaughter, spying on the happy princess as she sings with the forest animals. The Queen uses a crossbow and is about to fire a poisoned apple into Snow White's singing mouth when Mickey surprises her with a cake and she misses.

Poisoning another apple in the dungeon, Mickey appears and tries to help by adding pepper to what he assumes is soup. The Queen sneezes and gets doused with the concoction. Next, she walks down the steps and slips because Mickey just waxed the floors.

With Mickey causing so much trouble, the Evil Queen changes tactics, creating a poisoned banana and bringing it to Mickey, commanding that he eat it. Mickey squeezes a little too hard and the banana slips out of the peel and goes right down the Evil Queen's throat. She then creates a poisoned melon and bringing it to Mickey but slips on a banana peel.

Pacing in her throne room, the Magic Mirror reveals that Snow White is no longer the fairest in the land, but Mickey Mouse is. The Evil Queen then goes on a rampage of attempts to sabotage Mickey, including trying to push him off a bridge, bobbing for grenade apples, attempting to kill him with an ax, and chasing him down on his scooter from "Croissant de Triomphe. This last attempt ends with the Evil Queen in traction.

While she recuperates, the Magic Mirror sings the "Mickey Mouse Club March" and dons mouse ears, which does nothing to please the Evil Queen.

Recuperated, the Evil Queen traps Mickey’s house with poison apples that will bombard him when sits in his chair. Seeing Mickey go home, the Queen goes to the door to see if he is dead. However, he is fine. When Mickey turns to face the door, the wires connected to the apples also turn and launch at the Evil Queen, stuffing her with poison apples.

The Evil Queen awakens in a glass coffin in the forest that was meant for Snow White, telling Mickey Mouse that she hates him and sobbing because she will never be the fairest in the land. Mickey gets an idea and brings her to his house.

Assembling his neighbors around his porch, Mickey unveils the Evil Queen with a makeover, dressed as Snow White. The Magic Mirror cries happy tears, proclaiming her as the fairest of them all. Rats, skunks, rabid dogs and vultures assemble to carry the Evil Queen on the back of a donkey off into the sunset while "Someday My Prince Will Come" plays. The Evil Queen smiles and her powerful energy blast overfeeds Mickey’s heart, his eyes turning to X’s as he falls down.
