Mickey or Mortimer?
16 March 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

While not quite a classic, this is a very entertaining and fun Mickey Mouse cartoon. The story is simple but effective, and the scripting is rock solid. There are also some entertaining parts, the bull was a good character. But even more successful is for starters the animation, a very fluid and colourful style is used here and it works wonders. The music is wonderful, it is cheerful and it is lively, like music in a cartoon should be. The voice acting for its time is impressive, with Walt Disney applying his squeaky voice again for Mickey and doing a stellar job, and Marcellite Garner also impressive as Minnie. At the end of Mickey's Rival, I asked myself who did I prefer Mickey or Mortimer? I would have to go with Mickey, even with his whimsical charms I could tell how really obnoxious Mortimer was.

Overall, entertaining, a classic, not quite, but fun, you got it! 9/10 Bethany Cox
