Storyline

Mickey and Pluto go hunting for quail. Pluto scares away the first ones they see; Mickey scolds him, then relents. He shows Pluto how to be a pointer, and they set off after another quail, but Mickey accidentally jumps on a bear's nose, and thinks it's Pluto. Meanwhile, Pluto finds the quail and points. The babies climb on board and start picking at his hairs, but Pluto's been told not to move. Mickey finally comes across Pluto, who by now is covered by small animals, and realizes he's being followed by a bear. Mickey tries to reason with the bear, and backs off a cliff, onto Pluto.

Trivia

Walt Disney was filmed recording Mickey's voice as reference for the animators. During the session, Disney held his hand out, palm down, on the line "I'm Mickey Mouse. You know, Mickey Mouse?" estimating how tall he thought Mickey was. The gesture was incorporated into the animation. See more »

Quotes

Mickey Mouse: [finding out it's a bear behind him and not Pluto] Oh-oh-oh-oh! I-I-It's you. Oh, heh-heh, I mean, it is you, ain't it? I-I mean, isn't it? Heh-heh, heh. I thought you were Pluto, but you're not Pluto. You're you, huh? Huh? Well, I'm, uh, Mickey Mouse. You know? Mickey Mouse? I hope you've heard of me, I hope.

Mickey and Pluto go hunting
20 February 2001 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This short is memorable only for the fact that it somehow got nominated for an Oscar in 1939. It is by no means a bad cartoon-the animation is nice, the backgrounds quite detailed and technically, it is up to Disney standards-it just isn't all that memorable or interesting. Just a good, competent, workman-like short that's as filling as oatmeal and as tasty as a rice-cake. An okay cartoon, but for all that, barely a blip on the radar. They show this on The Ink and Paint Club.
