Mickey Mouse is the Mayor of Toontown. He hand-picked Flippy and Slappy to run in the "Toon Council Presidential Elections". The winner would lead the newly-established Toon Council to take care of Toontown while Mickey is working on his movies. After the Toon Council Presidential Elections spiraled into Doomsday, it was Doctor Surlee who pointed out that Flippy was the only leader Toontown had left. Flippy accepted the Toon Council presidency, only until Slappy returns.
Mickey Mouse is absent in-game, but pictures of his face are is shown on top of Toon Hall at Toontown Central. The Toontown Central playground is also shaped like Mickey's head and ears. Even Doctor Surlee's pocket-watch in the Toontown Rewritten logo is shaped like Mickey's head.
- “Mickey has always been a humble hero of mine. I loved watching his movies as a tiny tot, and I knew that I needed to move into town just to meet him! I wanted to move in as soon as I could, but I was going through Tooniversity at the time to get my degree in Loony Literature and Animated Adjectives. A year later I earned the degree and submitted my application to be accepted as one of the first residents of Toontown. A few months later, I got a letter from Mayor Mickey himself saying he was astounded by my application and gave me a key to move in!”
- “The problem with this is that we overloaded ourselves by a tiny bit. By a tiny bit, I mean all of us are literally dead. Literally. Shockley ran away, McQuack threw a temper tantrum, and I forwarded my resignation letter to Alec, then blew off all of my Jellybeans at Disney World and came crawling back today. (Those hats are expensive, but no one can pass up on some Mickey Merch!)”

- In Toontown Online, Mickey Mouse could be seen at Toontown Central. He would walk around, talk to Toons who walked up to him, and even dress up for Halloween. In Toontown Rewritten, he was taken out for copyright reasons, though the texture map for his 3D model can still be found in TTR's phase files.
- They did give an in-game reason for this, and that is because he is a movie star and has to currentely` work on some films for Disney, this also gave a reason for the Toon Counsil to exist.
