* ''[[Plane Crazy]]'' (1928) depicts very similar, and perhaps the very same, events as the beginning of this comic story. Both show Mickey Mouse and his barnyard friends being inspired by Charles Lindbergh and building a plane, which Mickey then flies with Minnie, who jumps off the plane and uses her undergarments as a parachute. Despite the major similarities, the two don't line up exactly, with one notable difference being the ending. In ''Plane Crazy'', Mickey crash lands in the same barnyard he took off from, with he and Minnie being on bad terms due to his aggressiveness. In ''Lost on a Desert Island'', he crash lands on the titular desert island, with him and Minnie having seemingly parted ways on good terms.
* ''[[The Mail Pilot]]'' (1933) also shows Mickey learning how to fly, albeit under completely different circumstances. Quite possibly, when Mickey said he was going to "learn to fly" in ''The Mail Pilot'', he was referring to learning how to fly professionally-made airplanes as opposed to homemade ones.▼
* The desert island seems to have been inspired by the setting of ''[[Jungle Rythym]]'' (1929)<ref name=:1></ref>, which also features Mickey dealing with wild animals in a jungle. In fact, a lion seen in ''Lost on a Desert Island'' has the exact same design as a lion seen in ''Jungle Rythym'', perhaps indicating that the lions are the same and that the jungle of ''Jungle Rythym'' and the desert island of ''Lost on a Desert Island'' are one and the same.
* The climax of ''[[The Castaway]]'' (1931) shows Mickey trapping a lion inside a crocodile just as he did in ''Lost on a Desert Island''. It is unclear if the two stories take place at the same time, or if Mickey was simply reusing a skill of his in ''The Castaway''. The fact that the stories have entirely different ways of explaining how he ended up in the jungle in the first place. ''The Castaway'' shows him washing up ashore after drifting in the ocean on a piece of debris. ''Lost on a Desert Island'' has his plane crashing on the island.

''Lost on a Desert Island'' was originally published as a serialized comic strip. It was the first story in the long-running ''Mickey Mouse'' comic strip. It was written by [[Walt Disney]]. The penciling was initially done by [[Ub Iwerks]], but [[Win Smith]] took over partway through the story. Smith also inked the story.<ref name=:0></ref>
