Storyline

Goofy's in the driver's seat, Mickey's in the kitchen, and Donald's in bed in Mickey's high-tech house trailer. When Goofy comes back to eat breakfast, leaving the car on autopilot, it takes them onto a dangerous closed mountain road. When Goofy realizes this, he accidentally unhooks the trailer, sending it on a perilous route. They come very close to disaster several times, while the oblivious Goofy drives on and hooks back up to them. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Solid proof that cartoons were better back in the day...
13 May 2000 | by (Cedar Rapids, IA) – See all my reviews

I had a video with a few old Disney cartoons back when I was ten or so, and haven't watched it in about 10 years. I happened to be watching my nephew today, when I decided to pop it in again. And to my surprise, I was still entertained.

The best on this tape was a toon from '38 called "Mickey's Trailer." An incredible short, with loads of amazing sight gags...the house revealing itself to be just a trailer by the dump, Goofy getting the short end of the stick via some disagreeable drawers, and probably best of all, a near-miss with a train--TWICE!

It is so hard to believe this was made over 60 years ago. Somehow the animators back then had a knack for making their works timeless. Hopefully, kids will be watching this short for another 60 years.
