Storyline

Mickey and others are firemen; they slide down an ostrich's neck when the alarm sounds. A squealing cat whose tail Mickey pulls acts as the siren. The nearest hydrant isn't working too well, so Horace Horsecollar takes drinks from a pond and uses that water to put out the fire. Minnie is trapped on an upper floor; Mickey climbs the neighboring building fire escape and uses a clothesline to cross to Minnie's building. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Great fun
16 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Disney and Mickey Mouse rarely disappoint in my book, and The Fire Fighters while not one of their best is still a winner. Perhaps it is not a major advance in animation and the idea does read of the typical Mickey rescues Minnie formula. However, there is much to enjoy still. The story even with a familiar idea is still tight in narrative, and The Fire Fighters is full of great gags such as Mickey inhaling and drawing a spider, the alarm sequence, Mickey spilling the water, the ladder coming down the pole, Horace drinking water and spilling it over the fire and the bit with the clothesline. The gag with the bloomers is one we've seen before, but is incredibly sweet still. The animation is fluid and clean, and the music is lovely and characterful. Mickey is always likable and his personality, primarily his frustration which we see visibly and really feel for him, is just great. Minnie is not as interesting but still charms and you do genuinely get the sense that Mickey and Minnie do care for one another. In a nutshell, not one of the greats but still lots of fun. 9/10 Bethany Cox
