Oswald the Lucky Rabbit is in charge of running a trolley. Today's ride, however, will result in messed-up tracks, a shut-down train and a nasty crash into a pool.

Trolley Troubles is one of transition levels in Epic Mickey, set as one of the three trials Mickey must go through before meeting Oswald himself. A major difference in the level is that, while the cow refused to move and Oswald ended up squeezing underneath her in the cartoon, Mickey can hit a switch that spooks the cow into running off, allowing the trolley to continue.
