Storyline

Mickey and his friends build an airplane from wood, using a dachshund like a rubber band. This plane never takes off, and quickly crashes into a tree. Mickey stretches his car into a semblance of an airplane, and brings Minnie along this time. Mickey is thrown from the plane, and struggles to get back in. The plane finally takes off. Mickey tries to get a kiss, but Minnie resists, and after Mickey kisses her anyway, she jumps out, using her bloomers as a parachute. Mickey crashes the plane soon after that.

Another timeless gem from the House of Mouse
12 February 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

"Plane Crazy" isn't quite as cute or as innovative as the brilliant "Steamboat Willie", but like "Steamboat Willie" it is a timeless gem and a cartoon milestone in its own right. It is very funny, and is still cute. The black and white animation may be a tad crude by today's standards, but in general it is not too bad. The backgrounds are detailed enough. The music as always is delightful, the story is engaging enough for kids and adults and Mickey once again gives a stellar performance, aided by the equally stellar voice work from Walt Disney.

Overall, is it the absolute best Disney cartoon? Maybe not, but timeless? You bet it is. 10/10 Bethany Cox
