Galloping Gaucho in Mexico
9 June 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

The Cactus Kid is not one of my favourite Disney cartoons, but it is still an interesting and humorous one. The basic story is very familiar, very reminiscent of Galloping Gaucho except in Mexico this time. There are differences however, Mickey is a more endearingly meek version than his bravado version in Galloping Gaucho for example. The animation is great however, you can actually see and feel Mickey's mix of courage and fear. The music is just as energetic as ever and does well in enhancing the action, the horse chase at the start cleverly has Horace galloping in time to the music. There are some great scenes, with the standouts being the shoot-out in the dark and Pete falls off the cliff and goes up and down like an accordion. The climatic chase sequence is nothing new strictly speaking, but still has some exciting action. All three characters are on top form, Mickey still has some depth to him especially in the animation, Minnie is just as likable and Pedro(Pete, interesting also that this is the first cartoon where you see his peg leg) is an entertaining foil. All in all, not a favourite but still recommended. 8/10 Bethany Cox
