Storyline

Mickey wants some of the cake Minnie has just baked, so he offers to clean up her yard. As he's working, a tiny tornado (smaller than him) with a mind of its own comes along and causes trouble. After Mickey finally chases the little twister off, it gets its big brother, which makes a grand mess of the yard. Most of the cartoon, except for the opening and closing, has no dialogue.

Not a bad follow-up to The Band Concert.
14 November 2015 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This is like a follow-up to the Disney cartoon, "The Band Concert," where the notorious tornado makes a reappearance, chasing Mickey away as he attempts to help Minnie clean up her yard so he could get a helping of a cake Minnie baked. Along for the wild ride is a mini-tornado (evidently the offspring of the adult one) who spends the majority of the cartoon playing tricks in the yard and annoying poor Mickey. It reminds me of a naughty little kid getting away with murder.

It's a funny little cartoon with great animation and featuring one of Mickey Mouse's later designs. It's another cartoon that I remembered from my childhood fondly - always remember that little whispering sound the little twister makes and the blasting of William Tell Overture that was played when the big twister shows up. Wished Mickey didn't get so much bad luck in this one, but, oh well - it's still not a bad cartoon.

Grade B-
