Mickey and the gang (Minnie, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto), otherwise known
as the "Fab Five", are on a vacation in Hawaii. Mickey is at the guitar,
Minnie and Donald does some hula dances, Goofy does surfing, and Pluto does
some sand searching.
While this IS a Mickey Mouse cartoon, the story is actually focused more
on the co-stars, more particularly Goofy and Pluto. Goofy has trouble surfing,
since the waves are uncooperative. Pluto has trouble with a starfish, a
seashell, and finally a crab. We see less of what's going on with Mickey,
Minnie, and Donald, although Donald did have a minor accident while dancing.
Despite the co-stars' troubles, everything turns out okay in the end.
It truly was a Hawaiian Holiday.
The stuff I liked in the cartoon was the artwork, plus the music (especially
when Pluto and the crab does a mirror dance). I also liked a lot of the
gags placed among the characters' conflicts. Most of the funniest jokes
came from Goofy's attempts to do some surfing. Goofy always has trouble
in whatever he plans to do, and they almost always come off with a spectacular
comedic showcase. Overall, the art, music, and comedy made it very easy
to ignore the story (as is the case in many Disney cartoons).
I really enjoyed Hawaiian Holiday, even though the cartoon was made 22
years before Hawaii became part of the Union. ALOHA!
