Storyline

Pegleg Pete drops his car off at Mickey's service station and gives him 10 minutes to remove the squeaking noise (it squeaks "Yankee Doodle", seemingly from every part.) That's plenty of time for our team to reduce the car to a pile of parts (and, eventually, find the source of the squeak). Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

A change for the better
10 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

The best Disney shorts were when they put a Disney character or characters in an everyday situation and let the chaos begin. This one was an early example of them moving away from the song and dance cartoons which they had been doing for so long and into that sort of thing. The antics that Mickey, Donald, and Goofy go through to fix Pete's car are genuinely funny, with a wonderfully loud end. A very good watch.
