Great animation, music and gags as well as a couple of interest points, but it all feels very familiar
18 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Disney and Mickey Mouse are one of those matches made in heaven. I enjoyed Mickey's Revue, but I didn't love it. As cute and fun as the Pluto causes chaos ending is, I couldn't shake off the vibe that I'd seen it all before. The story does seem very derivative and unoriginal, the set-up has certainly been used before and to better effect. This said, Mickey's Revue is still entertaining stuff. It is interesting for two things, that it is Goofy's first appearance, it's a limited one but one of the few really original things in the short, and that Horace does have more depth than the stereotypical horse you'd expect. Apart from some parts like the audience clapping that does seem re-used, the animation in quality is crisp and clean with the backgrounds not too sparse and the characters well-drawn, the two dogs in the second act of the short are especially interesting in animation. The music especially in the third act and the finale is full of energy and character. And there are some really fun moments, such as the three Clarabelles dancing in a way that is almost mocking the dancing of the song-and-dance routines seen in the shorts before, during and sometimes since Mickey's Revue, the two dogs with their droopy faces that is stone-cold still as their bodies do all the twisting, turning and contorting, the cute kittens helping out with the performance and causing havoc and just seeing Goofy. The characters are all engaging or likable, though there are shorts that show them with more character or animation depth. Overall, nothing new or particularly special but definitely entertaining and somewhat recommended. 7/10 Bethany Cox
