Contains the expression "Jiminy Cricket!", a polite euphemism for "Jesus Christ!" which was popular at the time, and would become the name of the legendary Walt Disney spokes-character who first appeared in Pinocchio (1940). See more »

This short, nominated for an Oscar for 1938, is the best color Mickey Mouse short, certainly and maybe the best short ever starring this most illustrious of rodents. Because of a misapprehension of a simple declarative sentence, our stalwart sets out on a course to become a somewhat reluctant hero. Well-executed and with Disney's usual attention to detail, this is an excellent cartoon, but it had the great misfortune to come out in the same year as an equally marvelous cartoon (also made by Disney) and so did not bring home the statuette for Walt. Most recommended.
