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>

Trivia

This is the last short to feature Peg Leg Pete's signature peg leg. The next cartoon featuring him (which is Moving Day (1936)) would show him having two good legs. This was because the animation of the peg leg was problematic; it was hard to tell which leg it was on. See more »

Goofs

Throughout most of the cartoon, Pete's left leg is pegged, but it changes to his right shortly before the end. See more »

A Walt Disney MICKEY MOUSE Cartoon.

Bullying gangster Pegleg Pete leaves his roadster at MICKEY'S SERVICE STATION for Mickey, Goofy & Donald to find the source of a squeak...or else!

Here is one of Mickey's final black & white cartoons and it is excellent. Watching the three hapless friends bring their chaotic cacophony to a climaxing crescendo - including a satisfying comeuppance for Pete - is tremendously funny.

Walt Disney (1901-1966) was always intrigued by pictures & drawings. As a lad in Marceline, Missouri, he sketched farm animals on scraps of paper; later, as an ambulance driver in France during the First World War, he drew comic figures on the sides of his vehicle. Back in Kansas City, along with artist Ub Iwerks, Walt developed a primitive animation studio that provided animated commercials and tiny cartoons for the local movie theaters. Always the innovator, his ALICE IN CARTOONLAND series broke ground in placing a live figure in a cartoon universe. Business reversals sent Disney & Iwerks to Hollywood in 1923, where Walt's older brother Roy became his lifelong business manager & counselor. When a mildly successful series with Oswald The Lucky Rabbit was snatched away by the distributor, the character of Mickey Mouse sprung into Walt's imagination, ensuring Disney's immortality. The happy arrival of sound technology made Mickey's screen debut, STEAMBOAT WILLIE (1928), a tremendous audience success with its use of synchronized music. The SILLY SYMPHONIES soon appeared, and Walt's growing crew of marvelously talented animators were quickly conquering new territory with full color, illusions of depth and radical advancements in personality development, an arena in which Walt's genius was unbeatable. Mickey's feisty, naughty behavior had captured millions of fans, but he was soon to be joined by other animated companions: temperamental Donald Duck, intellectually-challenged Goofy and energetic Pluto. All this was in preparation for Walt's grandest dream - feature length animated films. Against a blizzard of doomsayers, Walt persevered and over the next decades delighted children of all ages with the adventures of Snow White, Pinocchio, Dumbo, Bambi & Peter Pan. Walt never forgot that his fortunes were all started by a mouse, or that childlike simplicity of message and lots of hard work always pay off.
