Technical Specification


From Patrick Malone : Okay, so the animation's good and the gags are cute enough. Still, this series doesn't seem to have any real drama associated with it as you would expect from the title. It's almost as if you know how it's going to turn out in the end, so you don't get as concerned about how you're going to get there. There's no real surprises as they throw a series of stock gags at the screen, but as a whole, they don't seem to adhere together into a complete short; even for a short-short.
From J. D. Weil : 90 seconds of derring-do trying to rescue Minnie from Pete in a fun house arcade. I feel that short would have been better treated if it were a full length character short.
From Juan F. Lara : Mickey the Daring in Pete's Lair? This was a video game instead of a cartoon, featuring nothing but Pete throwing these preposterous dangers at Mickey. I was especially discouraged in finding out that that these "Rescue" shorts start with the same looong scene and are all set in that shabby little building.
From Tom : Better then the last short Train Tracks, but it was still pretty poor.
From David Gonterman : All this is missing is a joystick and a button! Consider this a good reason to make a Mickey Mouse "Dragon's Lair-style" Video Game, Roy-sama.
From Kyle Wiggins : Pete captures Minnie and ties her to dynamite. Mickey must try to rescue her before the dynamite blows up and she dies. When I watch it on the computer, I put in The Simpsons Road Rage Mission 2 music. Mickey grabs a punching bag and bounces back up the staircase and frees Minnie and the dynamite explodes on Pete. Minnie rewards Mickey with a kiss.
