The End
11 February 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

When Mickey and his gang need to raise money, they decide to put on a medicine show. For their product they settle on horse liniment with jumping beans added to the mix.

It's the last of the Mickey Maguire shorts. Mickey Rooney had starred in them since the series' beginning in 1927, 64 in all. Based on Fontaine Fox' Toonerville Trolley comic strip, it was an attempt to compete with Hal Roach's Our Gang series and was arguably the most successful. However, Mickey was growing too old to play the role, and his cohort likewise. He was going through a growth spurt, towards the eventual 64 inches he would attain. It was time to move on. Eventually the bundle of talent would wind up at MGM, where he would become a top-grossing star in the years before the Second World War, and continue to delight audiences through his death in 2014, aged 94.... and beyond. His last feature role was in the 2017 DR. JEKYLL AND MR.HYDE, 91 years after his first movie appearance.
