Wow...a Mickey Mouse cartoon with almost no plot!, 24 May 2009
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

I like the early cartoons of Mickey Mouse. Even though they are very crude by today's standards, there is a certain unmistakable charm about them that I just love. However, with this being said, I finally found a Mickey cartoon that just isn't up to snuff because it has virtually no plot--though it is still enjoyable.

Mickey is doing chores on the farm. This is THE plot. However, some of the things he does are milk Clarabelle (in her first cartoon), plow the fields with Clarence (in his first cartoon) and give Minnie a huge kiss--for which he pays dearly. The entire cartoon is set to music, which is timed very well with the action occurring on screen. Additionally, you get to hear Minnie sing--and it's painful indeed! Overall, watchable but somewhat pointless. Watch it if you are a big fan, otherwise try to find one with a bit more plot.
