Storyline

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 Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Mickey Mouse Speaks
29 November 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Yes, Mickey speaks all right in this milestone cartoon. In the cartoon, Mickey is a hot dog vendor at a carnival and says his first words, "Hot Dogs!" Mickey's voice was much different than it is today. He had a much more squeaky voice in this and in several shorts to come. I recommend this short for all fans of the Disney animated shorts.
