Storyline

Mickey is driving a taxi. His first fare is a very large gentleman. Mickey stops traffic and gets a tongue-lashing from the officer. The cab runs into some bad road, bounces the fare down to almost nothing, then bounces the customer right out of the cab. Mickey pulls up to the curb and picks up his second passenger, Minnie. She plays her accordion while they ride. The cab gets a flat tire, and Mickey uses a pig to pump it up. Snake oil salesman Pegleg Pete happens by and pours some of his elixir into the car; it takes off without him, crashes, loses its wheels, and lands on a cow. The cow takes off, crashes into a barn, and then a poultry shed. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Gags galore with Traffic Troubles...
8 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Disney was always a big part of my childhood. Traffic Troubles wasn't a cartoon that I grew up on, in fact it is a very recent endeavour for me, but it is a great cartoon regardless. The animation is crisp and smooth, with Mickey's facial expressions of frustration very well done and funny. The music is very catchy and has the typical energy you'd expect, while the story is interesting and there are some nice moments of verbal humour which was different as Disney cartoons around this time rarely used it. The characters are all engaging, Pete is delightful in his two appearances, Mickey is still endearing(likewise with Minnie) even back when he was daring and I enjoyed seeing Percy(the opening sequence and his taxi ride is interesting for the fact that it's set entirely in the city), Horace and Clarabelle. What I loved most about Traffic Troubles were the gags, some aren't the most original I've seen but all of them are clever and never less than amusing. The best were the ones with the pothole, the fare meter and the cow("oh heck"). In conclusion, a wonderful cartoon with many gags all of which hit the right buttons. 10/10 Bethany Cox
