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>

A Disney Christmas cartoon with humor and warmth
23 December 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite Disney Christmas cartoons, and this short is one of my favorite Mickey Mouse shorts from 1932. I am quite terribly particular about that a favorite cartoon short from which year.

In this short, Mickey and Pluto are a hobo and his dog, trying to earn money on the street on Christmas Eve - Mickey playing carols on bass while Pluto "sings". While the pair were playing outside a mansion, a spoiled child spies Pluto and wants him. The father asks his butler to buy him. Of course, Mickey would not sell his best pal, but when he sees a family much poorer then himself and Pluto - a widow and many kids, he made up his mind to sell Pluto and use the money to buy a tree, presents and things for a Christmas dinner for the widow and kids. Oh and don't worry about Pluto, folks. Things will turn out just fine. Just watch this cartoon and see.

Overall, all I can say is that I love this cartoon from beginning to end - with humor and warmth that makes it a Christmas favorite.
