Not exactly heavy on plot...but fun.
11 August 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Like so many early Mickey Mouse cartoons, this one isn't especially heavy on plot but it's also quite charming and worth seeing--even if it is pretty crudely made according to today's standards.

The film begins and ends with Mickey riding the rails but in the middle he and Minnie have assorted minor adventures. Then, at the end there is a wreck and stuff gets pretty weird as Mickey and Minnie go careening down the rails on a boxcar. Nothing much more to it than this, but it is pretty clever and the film still keeps your interest today.

By the way, get a load of the train. It's a pretty adorable anthropomorphic train and has quite a bit of personality.
