Trivia

Zazu, the hornbill from The Lion King (1994) appears briefly on two occasions, going by too fast to be seen at regular speed. First he's part of the debris being sucked down the trap door, then he is spit out of the monster's mouth as it growls at Mickey. See more »

Has some nice touches, but that's it
1 May 2004 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

You can see and feel in every second of this cartoon that it is a pretty new Mickey Mouse cartoon. It looks and feels to fresh. Mickey (voice of Wayne Allwine) has forgotten his anniversary with Minnie (voice of Russi Taylor) and has to make up for it. By accident he promises her a trip to Hawaii that will cost him a thousand dollars. Pluto (voice of Bill Farmer) shows him an ad where he can make that kind of money. When he arrives on the location he meets a Dr. Frankenollie (voice of Frasier's Kelsey Grammer) and he becomes a test person for a brain switch. He switches brains with a big monster (voice of Jim Cummings) who falls in love with Minnie. Of course Mickey has to solve this problem.

This short has some nice touches. We see how Mickey is playing a video game where he is Dopey and he has to fight the evil Queen from 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs'. Another fine touch is when Mickey shows the monster a picture of him and we see the black and white Mickey from his early cartoons. Besides those moments I didn't think this cartoon was very good. The 'Frankenstein' story is nice but that's it. Personally I think this could have been a lot better.
