Storyline

Mickey is ringmaster of a circus for orphans. Donald has a trained sea lion act, and does a bit of juggling himself. Mostly, though, he fights with a baby sea lion who keeps stealing both the fish and the show. Donald then finds himself and Mickey in an unrehearsed high wire act, which kicks into high gear when one of the orphans electrifies the wire. They end by doing a high dive into the seals' tank.

Nice one
9 April 2004 | by rbverhoefSee all my reviews

'Mickey's Circus' is a pretty funny animated short starring Mickey who announces Donald Duck and his sea-lions in a circus. There are three adult sea lions and one little one and especially the little one causes some trouble. Of course from that point everything else goes terribly wrong as well.

This is a nice short. There are quite some funny moments. Especially the moments where the little sea lion has a fight with Donald over a fish is very good. Near the end Mickey returns in the short when he ends up in the trapeze because Donald can't control his sea lions. Another nice one from Disney.
