Mad Doctor, The (film) Mickey Mouse cartoon; released on January 21, 1933. Directed by Dave Hand. Pluto is captured by an evil scientist and taken to an old castle. Mickey attempts to rescue him, in spite of bats, skeletons, and a giant skeletal spider. Just as a buzz saw is about to cut Mickey in two, he awakens to a mosquito biting him; it was all a nightmare and Pluto is safe. The British film censor at the time thought the film too frightening for some audiences.
