    Hidden Mickey in Tom Sawyer Island cave

    I was going through and resizing all of my photos from recent trips so I could maybe burn a few (hundred) of them to CDs and free up some of the massive load on my computer. While in the process I happened to stumble across a pic I had taken inside one of the caves on TSI (sorry... don't remember which one I was in at the time. I don't really frequent TSI all that often). I remember having taken the photograph because I was interested in the fossil-like imprints on the wall, but upon a closer inspection just now I spotted three dark stones that look to form a small Mickey. Of course, the stones are all about the same size, and are not physically touching, but are certainly positioned in just such a way that they do appear to be an intentional Mickey.

    I have a copy of Steve Barrett's book, and so I imediately went to the index and looked up TSI, but the only HM listed there was the one on the side of BTMRR that you can see from the Fort. I also ran a search here on DWT for this HM and didn't find any results, so I just though maybe I might be on to something. Here's some pics so you can be the judge. Whaddaya think?

    Going through my pictures again and the timestamps on each of them, I believe I have pieced together a more precise location of this potential HM. According to the timstamps, I took the picture you see here less than a full minute after another one which depicts the entrance to Injun Joe's Cave. That would mean that it is on a wall (On the left side, going by memory) only a short ways inside that cave. Most areas in all the TSI caves are very dark and difficult to see the walls, and perhaps this is why I didn't notice this HM before. And yet it was just light enough for me to make out the fossil-thingies... hmmm. I think I need to go take a closer look, now that I think I know where to find it again.

    From the perspective of an (admitted) purist when it comes to HM's ... I'm sad to say I am not feeling it. Of couse someone intentionally put them as they are, but they don't touch, and are all the same size. If they were smaller ears and a larger stone for the head and still didn't touch I'd be more apt to agree ... I'm sorry -- maybe someone else can shed light here too?

    As Clara mentioned, if you use criteria for the three-circle (classic) Hidden Mickey, this one doesn't quite make it. I believe that if the artist or designer wanted to form a classic HM with proper proportions, he or she could do it easily enough. But Disney's official line now is: "If you think it's a Hidden Mickey, then it is one." Cast members have recently become quite "loose" in what they call a Hidden Mickey. So I'll never (out loud) deny anyone's firm belief (especially a child's!).

    Well, even I thought it a bit of a stretch, but seeing as I already had a picture of it, i just figured I'd throw it out there and let you guys have a look-see to see what you all thought.
