Storyline

The princess (Minnie) is to wed the Prince (Goofy, still known as Dippy Dawg) against her wishes. When she refuses, her father the king locks her in the tower. Minstrel Mickey sees her and rescues her, making a rope from the clothes of lady-in-waiting Clarabell. The king spots them and prepares to chop off Mickey's head until Minnie intercedes. The king calls for a joust. Mickey wins, and they live happily ever after. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Quotes

[first lines]
Singers: [off-screen] In days of old / When knights were bold / And nightshirts held their sway, / A jolly minstrel strummed his lute / And sang this merry lay:
Mickey Mouse: I am a wandering minstrel. / I journey from afar. / My worldly goods are a sleepy old mule, / A song and a busted guitar. / Ha ha!

The first Mickey short set in a medieval setting
16 October 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This short is my favorite Mickey Mouse shorts from 1933; I am quite terribly particular about that (a favorite cartoon short from which year). Now this cartoon is set like a stage-theatre play, and it shows Mickey in a medieval setting as a wandering minstrel, saving Princess Minnie from having to marry Prince Goofy of Poopoopadoo...Yep! Prince Goofy, a villain...strange but true. Here is a note I like to point out: This short is the first Mickey short that is set in a medieval setting...The second is the popular colored short The Brave Little Tailor.

I don't have any particular scene I like, because I love this cartoon from beginning to end.
