    Micky mouse of

    I know the direct meaning of the word 'mickey mouse'.

    Could you please tell me is there any other meaning for the phrase: "Micky mouse of"?

    Thanks in advance.

    It can be used to indicate that something is ridiculous or something of a joke:

    That car was a Mickey Mouse of a car. It never started first time and was always running out of gas at the worst possible time.

    The meeting was a Mickey Mouse situation, with all the managers there and none of the staff.

    It can also describe something extremely simple or too easy, as in "That was such a Mickey Mouse final exam, I got 100% and I didn't even read the textbook."
