A lotta fun....
29 April 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of the last black & white Mickey Mouse cartoons, but despite lacking color, the quality of the animation is first-rate. Not only are the characters animated well, but the backgrounds are tops as well--with vivid shading and lots of depth. Frankly, this looks a lot better than most color cartoons due to all the time and effort used to make it.

The cartoon has very little in the way of plot. Peg-leg Pete has kidnapped a puppy and the police (Mickey and an early version of Donald) are in hot pursuit. And, despite Mickey and his pal being complete boobs, they manage to save the day. The big climax is in a sawmill and most of the film takes place there. As far as the action goes, none of it is a huge surprise but it does hold up well almost 80 years later. Lots of cartoony violence and action--the sort of cartoon that really appeals to younger audience members.
