From Jerry Edwards : An enjoyable cartoon with lots of action and gags. I enjoy one gag of Mickey using a stuffed swordfish against Pete's sword. The opening scene of the ship sailing on the ocean is especially nicely animated. The colorized version is nice, especially for giving color to the ocean.
From Ryan : This short kind of looks like something out of the Disney comics. The picture itself looks kind of like a comic. One scene I liked was where Mickey grabs a swordfish and uses that to fight Pete with. Pretty good short with lots of fun gags and action.
From Austin Long : The animation is outstanding for its time. The whole pirate theme suits Pete very well, and the idea of Mickey and Minnie trying to escape makes this very thrilling experience among Disney shorts. Can't miss; 4 and a half stars.
From Bill I. : Although this was a Mickey saves Minnie from Pete short, it was well animated and contained lots of great gags. I enjoyed the opening scene of the ship and the "identical" crew cleaning up. Pete somehow has shanghaied Mickey and Minnie and when he makes advances to Minnie tied up on a pole, Mickey escapes and the fight is on! Lots of action; the sword fight between Pete and Mickey was very well animated; the look on Mickey's face when his swordfish goes limp was great. But in the end, Mickey wins, as it should be and he gets a nice kiss from Minnie in the end.
From Maxwell Morton "Max" Goudiss : A short excerpt from this short is used in the "Walt Disney Presents" episode "The Goofy Success Story".
