This time Mickey is starring all on his own, with no back-up. And for a change he's actually got a good story instead of the usual 'disaster' plots. In this cartoon, he plays a tailor who, through a series of misunderstandings, is sent on a mission by the king to take out a giant who is about to pound on their village. Princess Minnie is his reward so obviously he's going to oblige no matter how impossible that mission may be.
Shock horror, there are actually some laughs and Mickey manages to hold our attention instead of making us drift away. The gimmicks and imagination are very good and the ending in which the villagers use the sleeping giant as a power source is very clever.
Definitely one of the best Mickey shorts.
