This cartoon begins with a very impressive bit of animation for 1930. Not only are the backgrounds painted very nicely, but with the foreground the way it was drawn, the cartoon has a nice 3-D effect--something you would not expect for the era.
In this film, Mickey and Minnie are in Mexico and a Pete-like Mexican bandit provides the foil. When the guy attacks Minnie, it's Mickey to the rescue. Filled with lots of great old time cartoon violence and fun, this one isn't hampered by the excessive music that many early Mickey cartoons were saddled with--and as a result is more watchable. Nice stuff.
