Storyline

Mickey courts Minnie in the Gay Nineties: they take in a vaudeville show and go for a drive in his horseless carriage, to the strains of "While Strolling Through the Park" and "In the Good Old Summertime". Goofy rides by on a penny-farthing bicycle, and the whole Duck family rides by on a bicycle built for five. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Amusing short about the Gay Nineties
12 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not much for Mickey cartoons made after the late 1930s, but here I'll make an exception. This is a cute short which looks back to the Gay Nineties, gently poking fun at the fashions, cars, and entertainment of the time. Though Mickey is not the rascally fellow he was in shorts such as Steamboat Willie (1928), he's still entertaining enough here and has amusing animation.

I'd recommend that you see it at least once if you love classic Disney animation and need to kill some time, or if you love that particular time period. Also, look out for cameos by animators Ward Kimball and Fred Moore during the vaudeville sequence!
