Storyline

Mickey and Pluto are reading scary stories; they go to investigate a noise and find a foundling mouse that's been left on the porch. Mickey searches for ways to amuse the tyke; he tries imitating Charles Chaplin and playing leapfrog with a squeeze toy, then realizes the tot is hungry. While Mickey is preparing the bottle, Pluto gets to know the kid, having run-ins with toys and fishbowl, which doesn't help much. Meanwhile, Mickey's having his own trouble with the bottle (the top of which eventually stretches his nose into an impersonation of 'Jimmy Durante'). Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Fantastic Mickey/Pluto cartoon
24 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Disney was a big part of my childhood and I do enjoy Mickey and Pluto, individually and together. Mickey Plays Papa is one of their finest examples of them together. What really impressed me was that it never felt routine, there are turns that are well done and we don't expect. For instance, the beginning has a lot of suspense and has a very mysterious/ghostly feel. Then we delve into the more comedic parts, where we have Pluto doing some of his best ever work right from swallowing a duck toy to ending up inside a trunk, these were imaginative and very well timed. The characters are wonderful, Pluto is cute, energetic and is a comic joy here, the baby is very cute but not cloyingly so and Mickey is suitably likable with an inspired Jimmy Durante impression at the end(his Charlie Chaplin attempt to stop the baby crying likewise). The music is beautifully matched with the action and adds so much character to it, but other than the gags and the opening it was the animation that was the outstanding asset. The opening scene is dark and moody in colour and shades which compliment the suspenseful mood perfectly, while the characters are some of the most rounded of any of the character designs for any of the Mickey Mouse cartoons of that particular era. The stranger's shadows creeping around Mickey's house are surprisingly realistic and has always given me goosebumps. All in all, simply fantastic. 10/10 Bethany Cox
