Mickey's Good Deed is an excellent holiday Disney cartoon, 25 December 2007
Author: tavm from Baton Rouge, LA

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.
