    All gone; Runaway Brain Mickey Ears?

    I was at Disneyland yesterday 10/17, and could not find these ears!
    Checked Briar Patch, Tomorrowlanding, Star Traders, Fantasyland Mad Hatter, Main Street Mad Hatter, Emporium. I did not check Gag Factory or World of Disney though.

    Only one person I saw was wearing it, they said they got it from DCA.
    So my sister got into DCA with her AP and got one of the last 3 from the front stores.

    If they got so many shipments of the Popcorn buckets, what happened to these? Glad I got one though

    I had this disappointment as well last year when I wanted the full Lime Green Mickey Ears (not the create an ear hat version) which I saw in photo updates like three months before and could not find them anywhere nor did any cast member have any idea what I was talking about. Now I can only find them sold online but only WDW ones. :/

    Yep, I even asked at Mad Hatter Main Street and Tomorrowlanding and both leads did not know what I was talking about, one of them thought I was talking about the Jack ears.

    Really? Hmm thanks

    It's quite disturbing when folks in the hat shops don't even know their own product. Runaway Brain is an obscure cartoon short that Disney really didn't push until... well.. recently.

    Re: All gone; Runaway Brain Mickey Ears?

    I was at Disneyland looking all over for them too (I kept calling them Monster Mickey and FrankenMickey, LOL), the CMs were very helpful but they're out park wide.

    BUT THERE'S HOPE! Guess where I found them (and by them I mean at least 20-30)????
    DCA in the shop along the midway games (just past where Malliboomer was if you're walking towards the Fun Wheel)

    I hope you can get over there and get one (now that I've spilled the beans!


    ALSO-I hear you on those darned Mickey popcorn buckets, I missed it again, out park-wide!

    I wonder if this includes the world of Disney store in DTD.

    Me again!
    There were no Runaway Brain Mickey ears in World of Disney at DTD. Believe me, I checked twice. Now, if they show up tomorrow, totally not my fault!

    I was on "goodie bag" detail for my cousin's trip this weekend and searched the entire resort for those ears. Best bet is the midway store because as of 6:30pm Oct. 18th, they had several rows of those ears on a couple shelves.

    Re: All gone; Runaway Brain Mickey Ears?

    Oh yes. Our Runaway Mickey ears are very popular, like others have said, most CMs don't really know what that character is. It's best to refer to him as zombie Mickey. And yes, Man Hat N Beach is not really visited that much, so that would be your best bet! And the R2D2 hats were insane! People just kept picking them out from my arms as soon as I'd bring some out. Another good advise is ask the Hatwritters. We keep spares of most hats behind the counters in case we mess one up. Another Hijack, I can't wait for Duffy ears!

    Saw a kid wearing the R2D2 ears at the park yesterday - they're too cute! Hadn't heard about the Runaway Brain ears...one more thing to put onto the wish list.

    That Man Hat N Beach store is the best place to get hard-to-find ears and hats. I was having the hardest time last year tracking down a pair of headband bride ears around the resort, and then I found a whole big display of 'em there. People definitely forget that store is there!
