I thought Disney was done for a little while making these for a little while, but then much to my surprise three new ones popped up in my YouTube feed this weekend (took me a few days to catch it, but...). I think these three catch us up on the current run of shorts, but do let me know in the comments if it doesn't.
In O Sole Minnie, Mickey is a frustrated gondola boy who tries to no avail to get Minnie's attention. Of this batch, this one is my favorite.
In Dog Show, Mickey and Pluto are about to head off to the dog show to try and win money to donate to an orphanage down the street when Goofy intervenes in a game of fetch that sends Pluto over the edge of a cliff. (I hate it when that happens.) In a diabolical scheme, Goofy steps in and goes to the show in Pluto's place. Of this batch, this is the most classic Disney but that means it is also the least innovative. Still, the physical humor is funny in that classic Goofy way.
In the Halloween themed Ghoul Friend, Mickey's suffers a car breakdown in the middle of a spooky wooded area. As he is trying to fix it, he runs into a ghastly Goofy skeleton, and a horrifying chase ensues. I'm just a sucker for love stories I guess, but of this batch, this probably has the funniest and most innovative gags and physical humor.
