Mickey guest-directs a radio orchestra. The sponsor loves the rehearsal, but come the actual performance, Goofy drops all the instruments under an elevator, so they sound like toys. The sponsor hates it, but the audience loves it anyway.

Not one of my favourites, but a nice cartoon all the same. The story is rather routine, though crisply paced and never less than entertaining, and Mickey though as likable as ever even for a character that has his name in the title plays second fiddle in terms of laughs to Goofy and Donald. Goofy and Donald are just great though, Goofy's hopeless attempts to bake a cake and his idea at the end represented by a light bulb that he reaches up to touch are the highlights of the cartoon and Donald's dancing was great to see, amusing and interesting. Another good scene was the Conga Train, which does make you want to go to the Rio Festival. The animation is bright and colourful, and the music from the whimsical orchestration to the rhythmic South American dance music(even a little bit of atonality on the organ) is typically wonderful. I also appreciated seeing the likes of Clara, Horace and Clarabelle, all three fun in their own way and makes one wish they were in more cartoons. All in all, a fun if not completely exceptional cartoon. 8/10 Bethany Cox
