Production Notes:

The release date noted above reflects the release date as currently acknowledged by the Walt Disney Company. Other sources- including some official Walt Disney Studios archival documentation- suggest May 3, 1929 as an alternate (and possibly more accurate!) release date. It is possibly that the official release dates were massaged in the early 1990's to bring them more in line with the indisputable U.S. Government copyright dates, thus protecting the Walt Disney Company copyright of Mickey Mouse and other characters from this cartoon, as well as the cartoon itself.

This is the only cartoon to portray Mickey as a genuine mouse-sized mouse.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.

  • May 3, 1929- Alternate Release Date
