The Worm Turns is a Mickey Mouse cartoon that was released in 1937.
Chemist Mickey concocts a super strength potion, called the "Courage Builder", that turns a fly into a fighter, a mouse into a super-mouse, a cat into a ferocious feline, Pluto into an attack dog, and a fire hydrant into a living hydrant.
