Typical hijinks
30 January 2005 | by (The Underverse) – See all my reviews

While on vacation in Hawaii Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and Pluto get up to the usual mischief. This short mainly focuses on surfing Goofy (in a ridiculous beach outfit) and his many failed attempts to catch a decent wave break and Pluto who just runs about on the beach getting shells stuck on his head. Donald doesn't do much other than burn his tail feathers in the fire and Mickey just serenades Minnie with his ukulele.

Not that funny (actually a bit boring) but vividly animated, as usual, which keeps your attention from drifting completely. Not the best Disney cartoon by far.
