Storyline

Mickey (and Pluto) are delivering a grocery order to Minnie. She pretends not to notice for a while, but when he gets hit on the head by an iron, she drops her pretense and rushes to his side. Mickey then helps with the dinner preparations, but Pluto steals the turkey, and a chase ensues. There's also a 4-layer cake that you just know is going to get ruined spectacularly.

A sweet and fun short with Mickey and Minnie
27 October 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Grocery Boy is not one Disney or Mickey's very best, the story is routine and rather thin structurally. But it is a more than worthwhile short. It is beautifully animated, at the start some of the editing could have been a little bit crisper, but the character designs are appealing and the black and white is beautifully shaded. The music has always been a huge part of why the Disney shorts have always worked so well, and I loved its jaunty charm and energy. The gags are always pleasantly amusing if not as hilarious as other Disney shorts from a similar time frame, though the cooking scenes are a breath of fresh air, and the chemistry between Mickey and Minnie is really sweet. Minnie has a lot of likability, if more coy than usual, and it is easy to see what Mickey sees in her to like her so much. Again, like in Mickey Cuts Up Mickey really makes the short, his playfulness is very endearing. The short ends on a fun if somewhat predictable note. So all in all, sweet and fun with Mickey's personality traits seeing him at his best. 8/10 Bethany Cox
