Inside Jokes

A tantalizing possibility of an inside joke : the train that Mickey and Pluto are riding on has "GERONOM" painted on the side as its name. Is the last letter supposed to be an "o" for Geronimo? More than likely it is supposed to be an "i" and refers to director Clyde Geronomi.

Comments

From Ryan : When I first saw this short on a video that I rented back when I was about eight or nine years old, I absolutely loved it. Disney did a great job with this short. Who could have made a better train conductor than Pete? On one of those "Disney Moments" that the Disney Channel airs, they showed Walt Disney and Billy Bletcher (the voice of Pete) doing the voice overs for this cartoon. This is definitely a classic Mickey short.
From Frank : It is the best. I am glad my daughter loves the Mick (so do I) and his games with Pete (particularly where Pete thanks the conductor as well as Pete's run in with the female invisible passenger who calls for the conductor) are the best and make me want to replay over and over again.
From Baruch Weiss : This was also one of my favorite Mickey cartoons. I enjoyed the scene where Pete (thinking it's Mickey and Pluto) grabs a woman. I also enjoyed the part where the mouse disguises as an Indian and says "How". Stereotype alert! Oh well It wouldn't matter anyhow considering that Disney does not show the old cartoons on TV anymore.
From Dino Cencia : Me and my dad love this part: TICKETS! I give this cartoon a 90 because it has a lot of funny parts like when Pete said: "So, it's you huh?" Mickey: "Yeah, ha ha, it's me I guess". Pete: "All alone without your dog". Mickey: "yeah, ha ha, all alone". Pete: "You know, I used to have a little cat once, and when it was left all alone, it'd cry: MEOW!" Then Pluto barks he thought it was a cat, but it was Pete who did it. Also, funny parts were Pete grabbed a woman (he thought it was Mickey and Pluto) and the woman hits him with her hat. The Tickets! part was really funny too. Mickey Mouse and Pluto rules!
