Classic Mickey and friends
24 November 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This short from Disney stars all the stars of the time, Mickey, Minnie, Clarabelle, Horace and Pluto (Goofy and Donald were still waiting to be created by the studio). The five go to the beach for a picnic and a swim. There are plenty of gags involving the characters but most involve Pluto behaving like a dog--and suffering the consequences. So, when he chases a crab, the crab snaps his tale and nose. And, when he bothers an octopus, the creature runs amok and it takes the combined forces of Mickey, Minnie, Clarabelle and Horace (well, mostly Horace) to rescue the dog.

This short works well because of its high gag content--they just come one after the other. Additionally, the singing and cutesiness you often see in early cartoons is missing--allowing the viewer to simply enjoy the humor and lovely animation. Well worth your time.
