In An American Werewolf in London, there are several scenes showing Disney characters in Alex's apartment. The main emphasis are the scenes with Mickey Mouse:
Jack is holding Mickey Mouse while making a joke to David.
Alex is trying to comfort David after he sees Jack visit him. The same Mickey Mouse figurine that Jack picked up is on the table beside her.
David is passing by Minnie Mouse and even makes a point to stop and look at the figurine while he is bored in Alex's apartment.
David reading his book right before he starts his transformation into a werewolf. The same Mickey Mouse figurine is beside him.
A shot of the same Mickey Mouse figurine. The director makes a point of showing this during David's transformation into a werewolf. The scene is showing David's transformation and then suddenly shows this Mickey Mouse figurine and then continues showing David's transformation.
A Donald Duck figurine to the right of David's shoulder as he is going through his transformation.
Is there any evidence that filmmakers used these Disney figurines as some sort of symbolism? Is there any significance to these figurines being prominently featured?
