Mickey's apparently on an African safari, riding on an elephant, but his shotgun disintegrates the first time he tries to use it. To sooth the vicious beasts, he plays tunes, sings, and dances, using the various animals and objects around him as instruments. Written by

By all means this is not Mickey's best, but is fun and charming still. Some of the backgrounds have a somewhat sparse and primitive look, and the cartoon is virtually plot-less with an abrupt ending. However, the character designs do flow well especially with the lion and also the jungle cat's cute facial expressions. The music is energetic and very catchy, it was nice to hear Turkey in the Straw again, and the dancing shows nifty choreography and flowing movement especially with the lion's hula dance. There are some fun gags, such as Mickey grabbing a branch off a tree and starting to play it like a saxophone and with the Monkeys. Mickey is very likable as ever, and the animals are colourful characters in their own right. Overall, a charming and amusing short if not one of Mickey's best. 8/10 Bethany Cox
