Didn't wow me but still fun
16 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I would watch anything with Mickey and Pluto in it, and while Fishin' Around is not one of their best efforts it is still worth watching. The story is rather routine and some of the first half is a little slow and only mildly amusing than funny. However, the animation is quite good, it isn't amazing with some moments that could have done with more fluidity, but Mickey's facial expressions really do come alive and the opening scenes with Mickey and Pluto rowing with the reflections and the oars and fish interrupting them have some interesting work too. The music is lively and helps to enhance the action. There are some good gags also especially Mickey catching the No Fishing sign he'd sunk earlier in front of the sheriff. Pluto barking underwater and being chased by the giant fish was also a good touch. Mickey even with a bit of the rebellious personality is very likable and Pluto is also a vital and energetic asset to Fishin' Around. There are a couple of times where he could have amped up the comedy just a tad, like chasing the fish more but this is typical cute and energetic Pluto and I love that. The sheriff is a great character as well, a big part of the reason why the second half for me came to life more effectively. All in all, fun but nothing extraordinary. 7/10 Bethany Cox
