Mickey's standard look in the early cartoons is the red short, yellow shoes, and no shirt. I know for the Disney live puppet shows, they use the red shorts....But, why in the parks has the tux always been his standard outfit?

Ohh good question. I know the old park Mickeys of yesteryear had the 'red shorts only' look, for example -



... but I'm not sure when / why it changed although seeing as its Disney I'm sure they have a good story / reason behind it if only that he wants to look his very best for all the guests.

Anyone??? =)

Wow! What a cool costume.

You should see my one now. Just need a few more springs, some pipe cleaners and a 500ml yoghurt pot!

That 2008 pic is interesting for sure. But yes, I agree, I think the tux is much more befitting to the Big Cheese lol.
