Very funny seal
2 June 2003 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is a very funny Mickey Mouse short. Mickey visits the Seal Park and by accident he is taking a little seal home. He discovers that when he is taking a bath, a very funny sequence. Pluto is not so pleased to see a seal with Mickey. A very nice short with a very funny ending.
