Storyline

Mickey is playing Christmas carols on a standup bass for change. Alas, all he gets is screws, rocks, and other useless stuff. He plays outside a rich man's window, and the spoiled brat kid inside decides he wants Pluto. Mickey isn't selling, but when his bass gets destroyed by a passing sleigh and he sees a house full of orphans with no presents, he changes his mind. Mickey plays Santa to the kids. Meanwhile, the brat has been torturing Pluto; his father finally has enough and throws Pluto out and spanks the child. Pluto and Mickey are reunited, and as a bonus, the kid has tied the Christmas turkey to Pluto's tail. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Mickey's Good Deed is an excellent holiday Disney cartoon
25 December 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just saw Mickey's Good Deed on YouTube. In this one, Mickey reluctantly agrees to sell his dog to a rich man's bratty son in order to buy presents for a poor cat family that ran over his bass violin. Having equal parts humor and pathos (loved the Jimmy Durante Jack-in-the-Box), this is a winning animated short from Walt Disney Productions from the early '30s. What a wonderful first Christmas cartoon from the House of Mouse. While the rich kid was indeed pretty cruel to Pluto, I felt sorry for him when his father spanked him. Nothing more to say except that this Mickey Mouse, far from being the corporate symbol he is presented as today, is very much a Depression-era character whose only companion is his faithful dog he loves unconditionally. Merry Chirstmas, Mickey and Pluto.
