A great short, if not quite as good as The Gorilla Mystery
22 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Of the three Disney shorts featuring Beppo the Gorilla, The Gorilla Mystery was my favourite, closely followed by this, The Pet Store. Mickey's Mechanical Man was very good as well. While not quite as good as The Gorilla Mystery, The Pet Store is still one of the finer examples of the gag-filled and slapstick Disney shorts. It is very well-animated, I have always loved Mickey's facial expressions and they don't disappoint, all the character designs are well done and the backgrounds are crisp and not sparse. The music is full of energy and is also beautifully orchestrated, while the story while slightly routine always maintains interest. The Pet Store shows Mickey as the bravest he's been since possibly The Klondike Kid, while Minnie is an appealing and not too dull and I did like that Beppo is gentler than his more antagonistic personality in The Gorilla Mystery. But it was the gags that made The Pet Store so worth watching. Beppo's King Kong imitation was inspired, but the best gags were when Mickey and Minnie run into each other running out of the store, fall down and then off into the sunset and especially when Mickey tries to dodge the boxes, gets clobbered every time, ducking, attempts to throw the cage and gets nailed on the head by the cash register drawer. I could see in these two gags where The Three Stooges got their inspiration from. All in all, great. 9/10 Bethany Cox
