I know trying to find a missing Flash game is a long shot, but I'll give it a shot anyway.
This was a game that I played in 2005-2008. (Actually 2000-2003, sorry. My math was bad.) I think it was called Elephant's Paintbrush, but I can't remember for sure. It was about an elephant trying to find his missing paintbrush.
The game was a point and click style. Each screen allowed the player travel between multiple landmarks. The game's art style was minimalist, with white backgrounds, so it was easy to see where to go. On each screen, a thought bubble would appear above the elephant's head, with the text "I want to find my paintbrush," or something to that effect.
I was never able to complete the game. After about four or five screens, I would end up in a monster's mouth. There was nowhere else to click on, and the game wouldn't end. It was too cartoony to be creepy. I would always click out of the game, confused.
Here's the weird bit: I am fairly certain the game was available on Disney.com, despite the fact it didn't seem to represent any show or movie. At the time, I didn't know of many websites. None of them could play games. Disney was one of my favourites, so I would play there often.
Has anyone else played this? Feel free to pick my brain for more details.
The swf file might still be out there somewhere. I found some House of Mouse rips, so I know it was possible to rip Disney's games.

If you remember it on the disney website, I suggest using the wayback machine and oldweb.today as archive sites to look for the game or games similar to it.
I can't seem to access the "Kid's Island", the area I'm pretty sure the game was on. It's been taken down. I definitely remember an island-shaped map housing this game and others. One of the others was Mikey and Minnie's Safe Internet Adventure, where Mickey and Minnie taught internet safety things that I wouldn't use until years later. Another was a game where you made characters from Out of the Box dance.
I got Kid's Island to work. None of the links go anywhere, but it looks and sounds just like it used to.
I'm noticing two listings on the Toontown building (Games). One is Disney's Games Cafe, with an icon that looks like Bejeweled, and the other is Free Mini Games, with an icon of a hockey puck with a face.

igrezadecu.com/hot-shot-business/ Oh! One of the pics on kid island showed this game on this website dumped. I think you could possibly find elephant paint brush! However, from your description of the game, it just kinda sounds like a game from the site scratch.
