In “MICKEY MOUSE AND THE MEDICINE MAN” the chipper cartoon rodent pushes his special brew on the natives. The tincture called Peppo looks and acts a lot like amphetamine.
And that’s fine because in the 1950s amphetamines were legal. In world War 2, the troops were fed Benzedrine to keep them sharp. Dexamyl was the drug that could curbs appetite and lifts moods.
Mickey sure was one tireless patriot.
