Here I've put together a model based off of the classic 1938 Mickey Mouse cartoon, Mickey's Trailer.
This is one of the many Mickey Mouse cartoons I grew up watching and I hope you've seen it too, but in case you haven't, it's available on Youtube!
In the cartoon, Mickey, Donald, and Goofy are living in a trailer. They start out parked in the incredibly scenic city dump before heading out on a rather rambunctious adventure out on the road.
For my project proposal I suggest they include a couple chickens and a cow, all of which make an appearance briefly in the show. I also included the "CITY DUMP" sign and the "ROAD CLOSED" sign. Unfortunately there's no Goofy minifigure, but I think the set could easily get by with just Mickey and Donald. Maybe a minifigure of Donald Duck in his pajamas?
I didn't go for an exact replication of the trailer in the episode, but I made a similar version that I think captures the essence of the one in the show while adapting it in a way that works great for Lego bricks.
I haven't put together an interior, but the entire project is under 300 pieces with all the accessories, meaning a $30 set would be entirely within reason.
I hope you enjoy the build and I hope you enjoyed watching the cartoon! Check out my other projects on Ideas:
