The Sorcerer Hat is the magical item and source to most of Yen Sid and Mickey Mouse's powers. The hat is for magical use and with it can be very powerful. In the wrong hands, the hat can be a deadly weapon as well as very dangerous and life threatening.
In the animated film, the sorcerer hat makes its first appearance. While Yen Sid is asleep, Mickey uses the hat to cast a spell on a broom so that it may do the chores for him.
In "Mickey and Minnie's Big Vacation", Mickey dons the hat to wash the flooded club.
In Mickey's House of Villains, Mickey uses the hat to battle Jafar during the climax. Jafar knocked the hat off of Mickey's head, but Aladdin comes to the rescue and gives Mickey the lamp which sucked Jafar in.
In the episodes "The Friendship Team" the hat's design was put in the form of a party hat as homage to Mickey's first feature.
Here, Donald Duck accidentally loses the hat and goes on an adventure to get it back.
