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.

Not one of my favourites, but still really sweet
13 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Wild Waves is not among Disney or Mickey's best. It is rather routine, and I did find it odd that the first half of the short had a story and then for the second half more of a series of song and dance numbers(I do think it would have been better as one or the other). However, the animation is quite nice, a little primitive at times, but at least the backgrounds have crispness and the character designs don't look awkward. The animation of the waves is very good also. The music is very upbeat and catchy, and the dancing aspect is just as energised and animated convincingly. There are some nice gags like with Minnie's clothesline, and I really did get the sense that Mickey and Minnie genuinely cared for one another. Both characters are very likable, and the animals that join in the second half of Wild Waves are colourful characters as well. Overall, really sweet and is easy to like, but at the same time Wild Waves is not one of my favourites. 7/10 Bethany Cox
