Suicidemouse.avi is a creepypasta centered on a black-and-white animated loop that portrays the iconic Disney character Mickey Mouse strolling around various buildings, accompanied by an unsettling piano soundtrack.

History and origin

The first sight of Suicide Mouse originated in 2001 when a comic strip titled "Mickey Mouse Trying to Commit Suicide," created by Floyd Gottfredson was leaked on Geocities. The comic strips gained recognition around 2006 when mentioned on Mouseplanet.com, along with an interview of Walt Disney discussing the strip.[1]

In October 2009, the creepypasta emerged on 4chan's /x/ by an anonymous user, later identified as Alexander Culafi, also known as Nintendo News Reporter. YouTuber Jojacob666 (the creator behind The Grifter and the infamous Candle Cove) recreated the pasta in a .gif preview,[2] and on October 27th, user Dakabt uploaded the full video to YouTube.[3] Another upload by YouTuber Nec1 on November 25th, 2009, included a fabricated backstory in the description,[4][1] which started off with the question "So do any of you remember those Mickey Mouse cartoons from the 1930s?."[5][4] A month later, YouTuber suicidemouseavi duplicated the video, becoming the most popular copy with 4.2 million views as of 2023.

The Suicidemouse.avi video would then became an example of an internet meme. For instance, the late YouTuber kitty0706 released a video titled "The Gmod Suicide Mouse Survival Guide." based on the creepypasta.[6]

The adaptation of Suicide Mouse, directed and written by Christo Lopez, follows YouTube sensation Leonard Owens, who discovers the lost reel mysteriously delivered to his doorstep.[7]

Synopsis

The three-minute film depicts a continuous loop of Mickey Mouse walking past at least six buildings.[1][8] The cartoon is characterized by a dissonant piano soundtrack, Mickey's non-smiling expression with a tilted head, and a total duration of 9 minutes and 4 seconds. During Leonard Maltin's review, an additional segment was discovered, unfolding after a cut to black at the 6th minute. This segment features bizarre visuals and unsettling sounds, including surreal and impossible images in the last thirty seconds. The disturbing content led an employee to hastily exit the room, taking a security guard's pistol and tragically ending his own life with a self-inflicted gunshot to the head.[8] The final frame allegedly displayed Russian text about the sights of hell.

Content

The cartoon begins with Mickey Mouse walking, looking sad, and there is no sound. But things start to change. Background music begins with rhythmic tapping, turning into what the source says "A murmur. It wasn't a language, but more like a gurgled cry." As the murmur gets louder and more urgent, the background changes into a strange and crazy scene, becoming a nightmare. At the same time, Mickey's face changes into an ugly sneer. When the video reaches about seven minutes, the initial 'gurgled cry' becomes a "tortured" scream. Mickey's face keeps changing, with his eyes and mouth getting bigger, and the buildings around him start to fall apart, crumble, and catch fire. By the eighth minute, Mickey is running around, his face becoming grotesque, and the screaming became very loud. Then the video suddenly switches to the familiar large, smiling Mickey logo usually shown at the start and end of Disney's old short cartoons.[5]

Variations

There had been multiple variations of Suicidemouse.avi. These are the notable ones listed below:

The most notable clone of Suicide Mouse was crafted by gorixgorix on February 27, 2013, amassing over 10 million views before its removal. The video begins with a distressed Mickey Mouse walking down a street accompanied by a melancholic piano melody. The video features unsettling elements such as static, a blackout revealing partially destroyed buildings, and eerie sounds. Several events involve Mickey's evolving expressions, a woman's scream, a town in flames, and mysterious voice messages. The video concludes with Mickey's presumed demise, a cameo by Chernabog from Fantasia, Russian text, and the haunting sound of a music box. Additionally, Gorixgorix created another video titled Magrolo Mouse, featuring Mickey's arch-nemesis, Magrolo.[9]

On February 8, 2021, YouTube creator Devin Millar uploaded his version of the creepypasta. In this version, the video shows Mickey walking down a street with a sad expression and depressing music. After a minute, it cuts to a black screen, then returns to Mickey walking down the street. Three minutes later, Mickey starts walking faster, and screams begin to play. The background warps, Mickey becomes eyeless, and the scream continues. As the background distorts, the video cuts to a close-up of Mickey before going black, displaying Russian text.[10]

Really Happy Mouse

Main Article: Really Happy Mouse

Really Happy Mouse is a screamer game created by EnclaveG and uploaded to Gamejolt on October 31, 2014. During gameplay, players control Mickey Mouse in a town, striving to maintain their sanity by collecting bowties and avoiding obstacles that decrease sanity. Various sanity levels trigger unsettling events, such as Mickey's upset expression, a growing smile, and creepy transformations in the background. As sanity depletes further, Mickey's face became distressed, buildings turn into creatures, and disturbing scenes with blood and dead bodies. When sanity hits zero, the screen cuts to black with a gunshot sound, followed by Russian text under a red-overlayed Mickey head, showing gruesome images and ending with a loud, distorted scream before returning to the main menu.
