Storyline

A friend shipped Mickey a baby elephant, Bobo (not, apparently, related to the Warner Bros. Bobo) as a playmate for Pluto. Pluto's first introduction is to Bobo's trunk, through a fence. He's not thrilled, and marches away. The playful Bobo grabs Pluto's tail and follows. Pluto's devil self tells him he's being replaced, and tells him to attack with red pepper.

Amusing and cute Silly Symphony
25 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

You have probably guessed I love the Disney Silly Symphonies, they are just so cute, funny and endearing. While "Mickey's Elephant" doesn't rank as a favourite of mine like "Ugly Duckling", "The Old Mill", "Flowers and Trees", "Skeleton Dance" and "Wynken, Blynken and Nod"(and of course "Steamboat Willie" is timeless), it is very cute and amusing. While it is isn't particularly laugh-out-loud funny, and the pace is a bit too fast, it is very enjoyable, thanks chiefly to the lovely animation and the outstanding music. There is a nice story, and the characters are endearing, especially the baby elephant Bobo who is so cute I think. The voice acting is excellent, Walt Disney does a good enough job as Mickey, and there is a very good lesson learnt at the end. Speaking of the ending as someone on YouTube said quite rightly, I love how nobody wins-Bobo keeps sneezing, Mickey's hard work is ruined and Pluto is angry because his house gets blown away. Overall, a very nice watch. 8/10 Bethany Cox
