Mickey, Donald and Goofy are fire fighters. As you might expect, their attempts at fighting a boarding house fire are not particularly effective. They hear Clarabelle singing in the bathtub and rescue her, tub and all, against her will (she won't believe there's a fire). Written by

I love the 1920s and 30s Mickey Mouse cartoons. Compared to the films of rival studios, they were head and shoulders over them all thanks to great quality animation, a wonderful sense of humor and nice characters. This one stars the wonderful trio of Mickey, Donald and Goofy and is in glorious Technicolor.
It begins with the three working as firemen. They respond to a fire with rather predictable results--though the weird scenes with an unusually dumb Clarabelle Cow are pretty strange. Despite the fire all around her, Clarabelle insists on taking her bath--and fights all attempts by these do-gooders to help. Again and again, she beats the snot out of the three heroes but they do not relent--they are determined to save this dopey bovine.
High quality throughout and quite entertaining. This is not the best film the trio made, but is still quite good and worth seeing--and, more importantly, the film has withstood the test of time. Try watching some of the incredibly insipid and saccharine films of rival studios of 1935--you'll no doubt see what I'm talking about when it comes to the outstanding quality of this Disney film.
