Storyline

Mickey and Minnie are next-door neighbors tending their yards. When Minnie is captured by a bird's song, Mickey hides in his bird-house and pretends to be a bird himself, until a cat attacks and blows his cover. Then he does a dance while wearing the house; their song attracts more birds, and again the cat. Pluto chases, but he's still pulling the lawnmower, and it causes much destruction.

Yardwork made fun!
27 October 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not one of my favourites by all means, but I do like it very much indeed. If there is anything that I didn't like so much about it it was that while Mickey and Minnie's dance sequence after that of the turtle was cute, it was little different to what we have already seen before and added little to the rest of the short. That aside, Mickey Cuts Up is charming and lots of fun. The animation is clean and bounces along beautifully, Mickey imitating a bird sticking out its head in the birdhouse was the standout, and the music has jaunty character all the way through. I loved the gags as well, those with the owl and fish may disturb some but were funny to me and that of Mickey acting like a turtle with the birdhouse on his back was playful in a deliciously innocent sense. Mickey and Pluto with the lawnmower and the interplay between Mickey and Minnie were positively charming, and you will get much pleasure from the wonderfully chaotic climatic chase sequence. Minnie is pretty and likable and Pluto is his usual energetic self, but Mickey is the revelation here. His charm, innocent-and very childlike playfulness and cheeky nature make him come alive and into character that feels real. All in all, a really well done short that manages to make yard work, my idea of a nightmare in honesty, fun. 9/10 Bethany Cox
