Mickey gets a package from Australia: a kangaroo, complete with boxing gloves. The 'roo moves into Pluto's brand new doghouse, much to his annoyance (which we actually hear voiced). Mickey gives the big 'roo a boxing workout, while leaving Pluto with the joey. Pluto gets into some old bedsprings, and bonds with the tot. Meanwhile, Mickey is getting pummelled. Written by

This short is on a DVD boxset "Walt Disney Treasures : Mickey Mouse in Black & White #2" I bought it when was on vacation with my family; And this short became one of my favorites out of the collection, I thought it was "bouncy-touncy" fun.
It started when Mickey got a package-crate from a Leo Buring from Australia. And to his (and Pluto's) surprise, the crate started jumping around and then SMASH! out comes a boxing kangaroo and her joey; I know it's girl because boy Kangaroos don't have pouches. Of course, Pluto did not like the idea of that "grasshopper" and her kid invading his premises; You know we get to hear his thoughts voiced by Pinto Colvig (who also does his barks and pants). I had noticed the Kangaroo and joey are drawn the same way as Mickey; And also the joey almost sounds like the Roadrunner from Warner Bros.
I love it when Pluto chases the little hopper,but Pluto gets wet thanks to the kangaroo hopping on the giant water pump. Pluto then gets a rough ride of a wheelbarrow (the wrong way) and lands in a garbage dump. Little does he realize that he got two paws stuck on a spring, and Pluto bounces up and down to the little kangaroo's delight. They hop for a little bit before Pluto hops a little too high and smashes head-first into the roof of a greenhouse. Pluto does not even realize the little kangaroo loved him for what he did and stayed attached like Pluto was the father by resting in a corset pouch Pluto previously bounced straight into! (a bit of risqué business huh?). Overall this a great cartoon and now I have gone "Kanga-Crazy!"
