Storyline

Mickey has built a robot to compete in the boxing ring against the giant gorilla, the Kongo Killer. Whenever it hears Minnie's car horn, it goes crazy and starts punching any picture of Killer that it sees, even if it's on a brick wall, thus hurting itself. Mickey manages to barely patch his robot together to take on Killer, but after some early success, it gets pummeled by the ape. Minnie fetches the car horn, which brings it back, and it trounces Killer, then flies apart. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Mickey and a robot vs. Beppo the Gorilla
18 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Disney I have always loved. Mickey's Mechanical Man is not one of their best, or even Mickey's best, with a set up that once Minnie's horn sets the robot off there are no surprises about what is going to happen and an end gag that is on the weird side, but it is still very good. The animation is really top-notch, very crisp and clean and while Mickey and Minnie are very controlled in their designs it is the wonderfully kinetic and increasingly frantic movements of the robot that stand out. The music is catchy and superbly orchestrated, while the gags especially when the robot loses control are very funny and the premise- revolving around a boxing match- is silly yet clever. Mickey and Minnie continue to be likable characters, and Beppo is appropriately antagonistic but it was the robot that makes Mickey's Menchanical Man as good as it is, very well animated and the best gags of the short are with it. All in all, a very good and fun short if not one of the greats. 8/10 Bethany Cox
