Storyline

Pirate Pete has kidnapped Mickey and Minnie and has them tied up. As Pete prepares to have his way with Minnie, Mickey escapes and gets a swordfish off the wall; a swordfight with Pete ensues. Mickey gets out of the cabin and on deck; he hoists Minnie up onto the mast. Pete summons his crew, and Mickey fights them off with a cannon, shooting pots and pans, a stove, and ultimately a harpoon before winning Minnie and the ship back for good.

Sailing for exciting swashbuckling adventure with Disney...
25 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Disney has always been a big part of my childhood, and Shanghaied is no exception to that rule. In fact I simply love this short in every way imaginable. True, we don't see Mickey and Minnie were shanghaied in the first place or why, but it is something that we imagine to ourselves. What makes Shanghaied so repeatedly watchable is many things. The animation is really beautifully done, especially in the opening sequence with the ship on the ocean. The music and sound effects have always been a big part of the Disney shorts' success, and here they are as rousing and energetic as ever. The story may read of a Mickey and Minnie vs Pete sort of story, but it is buoyantly paced and done in a fresh way, being in a different setting and having a different kind of action. The sword-fighting/swashbuckling is exciting to watch, very well-animated and I also think very funny as well, especially when Mickey's swordfish goes limp. There are some imaginative and fun gags that include Pete being knocked over and having a rolling chair's bottom attached to his peg leg, launching pots out of a cannon that stick on their heads and heaving a stove at them that the pirates get stuck in and Mickey launching a harpoon that corrals all the pirates and Pete, sticking them in an arc over the ocean. Mickey has never been more heroic and Pete(in these shorts that is) never more vile. Minnie is also likable, though Mickey and Pete have the best moments. I also liked how the identical pirate crew were reminiscent of the Beagle Boys. All in all, wonderful. 10/10 Bethany Cox
