Storyline

At the beach, Minnie is swept out to sea by a wave (while still wearing her high heels!). Mickey struggles with a rowboat (taken from atop an amorous couple) before swimming out to save her. When Minnie comes ashore, she is disoriented and depressed, so Mickey and the various creatures on the shore (pelicans, a walrus, seals, etc.) do a little song and dance to cheer her up.

Mickey's Beach Toon
15 May 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite Mickey Mouse cartoons from 1929. In this short, Mickey has a job as a beach lifeguard. And while he was singing with seaside friends (the seals, the gulls, etc.), he spotted Minnie Mouse drowning. As it was his duty, Mickey came to the rescue. His seaside friends clapped and cheered, as he placed Minnie on the shore.

"Where am I?" was the distressed Minnie's words when she came too.; she began to cry. But fortunately, Mickey and the seaside critters put on a song-and-dance show to cheer her up.

So my overall opinion is that I really love this cartoon. I also noticed in later cartoons, there was recycled animation from this cartoon.
