Mickey is looking after the orphans. He tells them the story of Gulliver (with Mickey in that role) in Lilliput, though without the satire and bawdy bits. The story ends with Mickey fighting a giant spider, about twice his size.

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 box set "Walt Disney Treasures : Mickey Mouse in Black & White #2" and I bought it when was on vacation with my family. 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 knew it's girl because boy kangaroos don't have pouches. Anyway, 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 noticed the kangaroo and joey are drawn the same way as Mickey, and also the joey almost sounds like Roadrunner from Warner Bros.
I love it when Pluto chases the little hopper, he gets wet thanks to the joey hopping on the giant water pump. Then Pluto goes for a rough ride of a wheelbarrow, and land in a garbage dump. With his back paws stuck on springs, 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 doesn't realize the little kangaroo now became attached to him by resting in a corset "pouch" he had previously bounced straight into from a clothes line before the greenhouse. A bit of risqué business huh? Overall this a great cartoon and now I have gone "Kanga-Crazy!"
