Trivia

Mickey's rival that swoons Minnie is named Mortimer Mouse. When Walt Disney created Mickey, he originally named his brainchild Mortimer Mouse, but his wife insisted that he be named Mickey, since "Mortimer" is too fancy a name for a cartoon character. See more »

A Mouse Love Triangle.
12 October 2015 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

In this Mickey and Minnie cartoon short, the couple are out in the country for a picnic. However, their quiet time together is interrupted by the cocky and loud-mouthed Mortimer Mouse, who swoons over Minnie and shows off his nice car. Needless to say, Mickey is jealous and an intriguing love triangle ensues.

It's a classic love competition between the three mice - even Mickey and Mortimer's cars were also in a little competitive bout. Mortimer proves to be a shallow and inconsiderate bully, making you want to root for Mickey. However, more chaos follows as a bull escapes his fenced-in area and wrecks havoc on the picnic goers. What results is pretty predictable, but the overall cartoon lacks some humor and action.

Grade B-
