Storyline

Mickey is performing routine maintenance on his tugboat (with interference from a pelican) when a call comes on the radio that there's a sinking ship needing assistance. Sadly, Mickey's crew consists of Donald and Goofy, so getting underway to help is not easy. Goofy has to fight a boiler's door to get it stoked with coal (and when he succeeds, he overfills it) and Donald gets tangled up in the machinery. Not to mention that nobody casts off, so they drag half the dock along with them. The overworked boiler soon explodes. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Are We Sure That Uncle Walt's Vocal Talents Are Present.........?
18 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

...........AS IT SURE sounds like a substitute to us!!

TAKING ON YET another group team comic effort, the Disney Studios' answer to the Brothers Marx & Ritz, as well as Laurel & Hardy, the Stooges, etc.gives their best in team effort.

PERHAPS THIS COMBINATION of character concept was getting just a trifle stale or maybe the creative talent was being allocated in a greater proportional configuration to the animated features; like SNOW WHITE, PINNOCHIO, BAMBI, DUMBO and FANTASIA.

OUTSIDE OF THE obvious buffoonery of the actions by the true supporting characters of Donald & Goofy and the now much more straight laced demeanor of the "Top Banana", Mickey; the big development was the physical appearance of this anthropomorphic trio. This goes especially for their facial construction and make up.

SOMETIME BETWEEN THE earlier short, BOAT BUILDERS and this maritime outing, an editorial policy decreed that Mickey especially needed an upgrade.

PRODUCTION ON WHAT was originally to be called "the Concert Feature" had a segment starring Mr. Mouse in it called The Sorcerer's Apprentice and the feature, now dubbed FANTASIA, showcased this more complex countenance.

WE RECENTLY VIEWED this short along with BOAT BUILDERS on Turner Classic Movies' FROM THE Disney VAULT Feature with Leonard Maltin.
