Yoo-Hoo!
25 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Mickey's Follies is not among the best or worst cartoon shorts I've seen. The plot is rather thin on the ground and a couple of scenes are on the routine side especially the ducks. This said, Mickey's Follies is definitely worth seeing. The quality of the animation is truly excellent, beautifully synchronised with the music particularly in the chicken fight sequence. The barnyard setting is not the most interesting setting of all, but serves its purpose. The character designs are nicely rounded and the backgrounds are smooth. The music is not only a pleasant listen, but also brings so much energy to every gag and scene. Minnie's Yoo-Hoo is one of the best Disney theme songs, it is so darn catchy. The gags are a lot of fun also, the best being with Patricia the operatic pig, not just with her bloomers falling down but also because of how bad her singing is and how everyone reacts to it. Mickey is very likable, Minnie likewise in her brief appearance and the supporting characters also shine. Overall, not wholly remarkable but fun cartoon. 8/10 Bethany Cox
