Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Narrated by Jiminy Cricket (voice supplied by Cliff "Ukelele Ike" Edwards, this Disneyland cartoon-compilation episode shows Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, Pluto et. al. taking time off for a variety of outdoor activities. We see our heroes heading for the mountains in Mickey's RV, to the beach at Waikiki, and a dude ranch. The episode's high points include Mickey's pet dog Pluto wrestling with an octopus-like wad of chewing gum, and Goofy going in for a spot of fishing with his pet grasshopper Wilbur (who turns out to be Jiminy Cricket's nephew) Reboadcast several times, "On Vacation" was shown as an NBC special on April 11, 1979, under the title On Vacation with Mickey and Friends; this same title was used when the program was released to home video in the early 1980s.
