Pretty bad...
5 November 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This Disney short inexplicably finds Mickey and Pluto in Australia! Much of the cartoon finds Pluto fighting with a boomerang--a rather lame bit of time-filling if you ask me. It really wasn't very inspired and went on a bit too long. Later, Mickey has a run in with an ostrich (in Australia!!!!) and it's up to Pluto and the boomerang to come to the rescue.

Overall, this is a particularly bad Disney outing--and not just because they put an ostrich in the wrong part of the world. The animation is good but the story is just pretty dumb and is amazingly weak. The only memorable aspect of the short is the appearance of the new voice for Mickey. Other than that, pretty easy to skip.
