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 »

Mickey or Mortimer?
16 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

While not quite a classic, this is a very entertaining and fun Mickey Mouse cartoon. The story is simple but effective, and the scripting is rock solid. There are also some entertaining parts, the bull was a good character. But even more successful is for starters the animation, a very fluid and colourful style is used here and it works wonders. The music is wonderful, it is cheerful and it is lively, like music in a cartoon should be. The voice acting for its time is impressive, with Walt Disney applying his squeaky voice again for Mickey and doing a stellar job, and Marcellite Garner also impressive as Minnie. At the end of Mickey's Rival, I asked myself who did I prefer Mickey or Mortimer? I would have to go with Mickey, even with his whimsical charms I could tell how really obnoxious Mortimer was.

Overall, entertaining, a classic, not quite, but fun, you got it! 9/10 Bethany Cox
