Dr Jekyll and Mr Mouse is a comic story written by Stefan Petrucha, penciled by Francisco Rodriguez Peinado and inked by Enriqueta Perea. It features Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Clarabelle Cow and Horace Horsecollar, as well as the debuts of Doctor Manfred Meek, Jane Plain and Al Aggrand.
Just after getting chewed out by his girlfriend over being too much of a daredevil, Mickey Mouse accidentally drinks a chemical potion brewed up by Doctor Manfred Meek, which makes him into the world's boldest daredevil!
- The title compares Mickey Mouse to Doctor Jekyll, first mentioned in Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hydrange (1983), and established to have been a real person in the Disney Comics Universe in Doctor Jekyll & Mr McDuck (1987). Like Jekyll, Mickey lapses into an alternate personality due to having ingested an experimental chemical solution.
- Mickey is offered a deal with K-O-R-N TV, mirroring the K-O-R-N Radio of Land Beneath the Ground (1956).
