Mickey has been reading Lewis Carroll's "Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There", and falls asleep. He finds himself on the other side of the mirror, where the furniture is alive. He eats a walnut, which makes him briefly larger, then small. He dances around a lot, ultimately doing a major number with a deck of cards. He dances with the queen, making the king jealous. He comes after Mickey with swords, and Mickey defends himself with a sewing needle. Mickey gets the upper hand, and the king calls for reinforcements. Mickey finds himself chased by several decks, which throw their spots at him. He turns on a fan and blows them away, back through the mirror, where his alarm is ringing. Written by

Fun Disney take on Lewis Carroll's "Through the Looking Glass." Here Mickey Mouse falls asleep reading that book, then his spirit leaves his body and goes through a mirror. On the other side of the mirror is a wacky version of Mickey's house where the inanimate objects have come to life. A lot of really cool trippy stuff follows that I don't want to spoil for you. Needless to say it's awesome to watch, especially for the time in which it was made. The animation is top-notch (it was Disney, after all). The characters and backgrounds are all well-drawn and the action is excitingly realized. Love the music, too. Fine voice work from Walt Disney. This is as wacky and creative as it gets for 1936 and I can't imagine anyone not having a good time with it. Just a fun cartoon from start to finish.
