Boring and predictable
21 February 2005 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

Mickey cartoons all follow the same formula. Whatever he's doing will soon fall into chaos as soon as Donald shows up or whatever he's in charge of inexplicable rebels.

In this cartoon, nothing is different. He's hosting an amateur music show on the radio and Donald forgets the lyrics to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. He's not happy about being booed and won't give up even after being kicked off. Clara Cow (or whoever) and Goofy turn up with some failed acts (both interrupted by Donald) that go haywire in the most predictable of fashions.

Not that funny and not that interesting. So much so that I did the hoovering while watching it.
