Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This Disney collection offers the lucky viewer several prime examples of the world's most famous mouse, from his early black-and-white days to the Technicolor '50s. The representative cartoons include Shanghaied, in which Mickey rescues Minnie from the clutches of pirate captain Peg-leg Pete; Alpine Climbers, the highlight of which is a St. Bernard's rescue of Goofy; and Mickey's Circus, wherein Donald Duck runs afoul of a performing seal act. The best of the bunch is 1935's Mickey's Polo Team. This is truly an "all-star" effort, featuring not only Mickey and the gang but dead-on caricatures of such celebrities as Laurel and Hardy, Harpo Marx, Wallace Beery and even Spencer Tracy. Also included are Mickey Down Under and R'coon Dawg.
