As I write this in 2007, Mickey is still chugging along. One new appearance is already on the books for him in the IMDb, in the 82nd year of his movie career, He played midgets in 1926, was MGM's biggest star in the late 1930s and is still chugging along. Bless him.
As to this short, it's nothing much: an attempt to compete with the enormous success of Hal Roach's OUR GANG series, using one of Fontaine Fox's comic strips (he was best known for the Toonerville Trolley, and, indeed, this one takes place among the youngsters of that megalopolis) that isn't very successful, because Mickey is about ninety per cent of the show and he's not good enough to carry a movie, even of this length, at this tender age. But bless him anyway.
