"It's a Surprise Tool That Will Helps Us Later is a series of image macros featuring a screenshot from the Disney Channel animated television series Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. The meme generally keeps the image of Mickey saying the line, "it's a surprise tool that will help us later," while the caption indicates that the surprise tool is something offensive, violent or outside the realm of the Disney universe.


"It's a surprise tool that will help us later" is a line from the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cartoon series, which premiered on May 6th, 2006.[1] On the show, a computer generated Mickey Mouse uses a mechanical assistant named the "Mouseketool," which gives him various items for problem solving. Because the show is an interactive educational one for early-childhood learning, Mickey often asks the audience what tool should be used. One tool is usually kept a mystery until later in the show, which leads Mickey to say the line.

Among the earliest iterations of picture as a meme comes from the Facebook meme account Eres Todo Un Loquillo.[2] In the image (shown below), Mickey Mouse is subtitled saying, "It's a surprise tool that will help us later." The caption says, "Why are you buying condoms? Aren't we going to the movies?" The post received more than 24,000 reactions and 6,100 shares.
