Season 3, Episode 4: “Movie Time” 9/11/15
Starring: Mickey Mouse
Co-starring: Minnie Mouse
Setting: Miami, Florida
Plot: Mickey gets caught in a storm while picking up snacks for “Movie Time” with Minnie.
That opening beach shot looks a lot like South Beach in Miami.
The framed picture on Minnie’s wall of a windmill could either be a call back to Clogged or foreshadowing for the winds to come!
That poor bunny LITERALLY gets caught with his pants around his ankles while sitting on the toilet.
Was that a Batman reference when Mickey holds out the palms like wings and the dramatic musical score hits?
Final Grade: C+
This one didn’t do much for me. Granted, it had a tough act to follow after the last two shorts but this one never aspired to be more than just a straight forward, slapsticky cartoon. The only interesting thing about it is that it’s set in Miami but we never get anything more than that opening shot of the beach. I hate to say it but episodes like this just feel like filler. Another stock “Mickey saves Minnie” short… *yawn.*
