Mickey is selling hot dogs at a carnival next to the tent for Minnie the Shimmy Dancer. He gets into an argument with the barker. Minnie beckons him over to her trailer; he shows off the tricks his pups have been trained to do, and she picks one. It climbs onto the bun but runs away when she bites in. Later that evening, Mickey plays guitar and two cats sing outside Minnie's window; they eventually awaken someone, who throws things at them until they stop. Written by

A very interesting cartoon, even though Mickey sounds as though he hasn't found his voice yet
Disney has always been a big part of my childhood, and while The Karnival Kid is a cartoon I don't adore it is a very interesting cartoon signifying the first time you hear Mickey talk. The story doesn't hit any new ground with a rather abrupt ending, and I personally did find Mickey's rather gruff-sounding voice odd here, almost as though he hasn't found his voice yet and considering the cartoon's significance I'm not surprised. However the animation is great, with the backgrounds smooth, the character designs appealing and the visual gags inventive. The music is just as effective, characterful and full of vitality, enhancing the action rather than just an excuse to lump song and dance numbers together. The gags are fun, with the first sequence having sheer kinetic energy, the hot dog scene is cute and the cats in the somewhat quieter and simpler second half of the cartoon are hilarious. All the characters are very likable also. In conclusion, not one of my favourites but important and a good cartoon anyway. 8/10 Bethany Cox
