Storyline

Mickey is ringmaster of a circus for orphans. Donald has a trained sea lion act, and does a bit of juggling himself. Mostly, though, he fights with a baby sea lion who keeps stealing both the fish and the show. Donald then finds himself and Mickey in an unrehearsed high wire act, which kicks into high gear when one of the orphans electrifies the wire. They end by doing a high dive into the seals' tank. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Nothing like a little gratitude eh?
11 December 2004 | by CuriosityKilledShawnSee all my reviews

Mickey's Circus is having an 'orphans for free' day. All of the orphans appear to be Mickey Mice. His circus ain't up to much as far as we see. All he appears to have are a bunch of dancing seals, they baby is the cutest.

Though classed as a Mickey cartoon, he disappears for most of the show, leaving Donald to go crazy in that way he always does. Obviously the seals torment Donald and cause him no end of grief but why do the orphans suddenly turn on Mickey's Circus? The pack him and Donald into the cannon and blast them off. Nothing like saying thanks huh?

There are a few laughs in this one. But not a lot. I don't like circuses.
