The Toontown Field Guide: Certificates of Merit

In the living room of his house in Disneyland's Toontown, Mickey proudly displays two Certificates of Merit, both awarded by Toontown Mayor Anna Mation and both bearing the official Toontown Seal. Each one corresponds to a specific classic Mickey Mouse cartoon. The certificate for Alpine Climbing refers to the 1936 short Alpine Climbers that featured Mickey, Donald Duck and Pluto. A certificate for Excellence in Mice Skating makes reference to the 1935 cartoon On Ice. Each certificate bears a date that corresponds to each cartoon's original date of release; On Ice on September 28, 1935, Alpine Climbers on July 25, 1936.
