A commercial pitch in a cartoon short.
25 February 2016 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

So, this cartoon short was shorter than usual, running at just over five minutes. Turns out it is a commercial pitch for the National Biscuit Company (Nabisco) at the 1939 World's Fair. It shows Minnie trying to surprise Mickey by baking cookies that his mother used to make. But, Minnie's dog Fifi accidentally knocks a box of kernel onto the cookie mix and Minnie unknowingly puts that entire batch in the oven. After Mickey and Pluto shows up, the cookies burn and pops around like popcorn, leaving Minnie and Fifi in grief. To lighten things up, Mickey goes to the store and returns with boxes of Nabisco snacks.

It's a pretty nice commercial pitch, but the cartoon itself wasn't very funny or entertaining and it was pretty non-substantive. Not much of a story here, and the characters were pretty bland.
