Early Mickey & Pluto
30 May 2004 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Mickey and Pluto go fishin', even though it's not permitted. They get stopped by a policeman but escape him through Pluto's 50 horsepower tale apparently...

Walt Disney (30 at the time) himself did the voice of Mickey (as he did a lot of times, I didn't know that before I looked up this movie), but the movie on the whole was a bit disappointing. The animation is a bit crappy (though this one is older than I first expected) and the story is only so and so, in particular the first half. Once the policeman arrives at the scene the real fun begins but it's too little too late I'm afraid.

5/10 for this early Disney.
