Peanuts, by Charles Schulz, especially in the later years had a running joke about Spike having Mickey Mouse shoes:

Another strip says that they were given to him by Mickey Mouse, but I can't find it.

That said, it got me wondering: Peanuts, being a one man show, could acknowledge other universes (There's even a strip where Sally writes to Harry Potter). However, does Mickey ever reciprocate? Is there any time where Mickey mentions a cartoon or comic character not owned by Disney? (Preferably Peanuts, but any cartoon/comic would count.)

    Which Disney universe? – Spencer Feb 13 '19 at 0:28

    'Wreck It Ralph' is a current example - lots of non-Disney crossover in that. Phineas and Ferb running an entire Star Wars crossover shouldn't count because Disney owned both properties by that point – NKCampbell Feb 13 '19 at 4:39
  • By "disney universe", are you referring to the gigantic maelstrom of stories from grimm's stories to science-fiction movies... or simply the video game? – nicolallias Feb 13 '19 at 8:38
  • Sorry, Ash, have to agree that as now the question lacks details required to specify an answer. You will have to define what type of references you are fine with - ie, what you mean by "Disney universe". As @NKCampbell already said - does Wreck It Ralph count? It features characters from multiple videogames not owned by the Disney company. – BlueSoul Feb 13 '19 at 10:14

    Roger Rabbit might be another example, though that might better be described as a separate universe that includes both Disney and other characters. – VBartilucci Feb 13 '19 at 20:30

Does Who Framed Roger Rabbit? count?

It's a Disney film, and features Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny in a scene together, Donald Duck and Daffy Duck having a Piano duel, and dozens of other animated characters from assorted non-Disney franchises in various cameos. However, Mickey is not the main character, so you might not count it as "the Mickey Mouse Universe".
