Although the cannibal characterisations may offend some, a very interesting cartoon regardless
20 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If anything, Trader Mickey is on par with Mickey's Man Friday and is vastly superior to Cannibal Capers, of which you can definitely see some influence here. The native cannibals are stereotypical and may offend some people like with the giant lips, and while fun to see the Ballyhoo gag is rather dated. However, the rest of the gags are very funny, the best revolving around the misuse of the instruments by the cannibals. The animation is crisp and smooth overall, with the opening sequence having so much kinetic energy and the ending visual with the chief(who laughs just like Goofy) falling in the soup pot is fun. The story is thin, but elevated by the gags and the cleverly choreographed dance sequence forming the second half of the cartoon. The music flows wonderfully, enhancing the action just as effectively as you'd expect. Mickey is very likable and has more to do in a way than Mickey's Man Friday, while Pluto is as cute as ever even if his shining moment is in the opening scene and for perhaps the first time plays secondary to Mickey and the cannibals. All in all, very interesting. 8/10 Bethany Cox
