Storyline

Mickey goes about his farm chores, plowing with Horace and milking Clarabelle, while Minnie sings (until Mickey kisses her, when she stalks off). Clarabelle gets too friendly with Mickey, forcing him to wrap her tongue around her snout. A bee stings Horace and he gallops off uncontrollably, breaking Mickey's plow.

The Ployboy (1929)

*** (out of 4)

If you're looking for plot then it's best you stay away from this Mickey Mouse short, which has him working in the fields with his cow Clarabelle. She's refusing to work that well so Mickey ends up getting into some trouble. THE PLOYBOY is a pretty entertaining cartoon even though it contains pretty much zero story. It's basically a cute little film thanks in large part to the animation but there's also a nice little score that goes along with it as Mickey and Minnie both whistle a nice tune. There are some funny moments to be found including one sequence where Mickey gets fed up with Clarabelle licking him so he has to resort to a couple tricks.
