Following on from the masterpiece that was Castle of Illusion, Fantasia was Mickey Mouse's second outing on the Mega Drive. Based on a film featuring beautiful animation and a wondrous soundtrack, surely Sega would have another hit on their hands with this. Wouldn't they?

Cool Spot was the red spot in the logo for the 7 Up drinks, and he featured in his own games in an shameless attempts to push sales of the fizzy pop. In America at least.
