Mickey Conjures Up a Great Magic Window Pin
Fantasia has a special place in the Disney cannon for having the first (and one of the rare) appearances of Mickey in a full length theatrically released movie. Mickey as the Sorcerer’s Apprentice is a pop culture icon, and that roll is captured in one of the Windows of Magic pins.
This pin is the counter to the Windows of Evil pin for Chernabog. Not that they share any screen time or even fought each other. But they were both in Fantasia but in completely different segments. Still, since they are from the same movie, I can see why they were paired up for these pin series.
This is a very red pin. The background behind Mickey is red, and it makes it stand out. Mickey’s face is centered in the window, and he’s wearing the blue sorcerer’s hat. Down at the bottom, there’s one broom with two buckets. We’ve got swirls of blue water and bubbles in the background as well. The frame for the window has some stars and clouds as well as the suggestion of waves.
I really like this pin. It’s bright and colorful. Even though this is a pin and not a real stained-glass window, it catches enough light to look like one. While we have plenty of merchandise with Sorcerer Mickey, I don’t have that much, so this is a fun addition to my collection for that reason.
I wasn’t the only one who liked this entry in the series. While some were more popular than others, this is one that was immediately sold out on release day, so if you are interested in it, you’ll have to be patient until you can find one in your price range.
Sorcerer Mickey has plenty of merchandise, but this fun Windows of Magic pin is still a great addition to your collection.
