Mickey’s Delayed Date (film) Mickey Mouse cartoon; released on October 3, 1947. Directed by Charles Nichols. Minnie phones Mickey from a party to hurry up, and with the aid of Pluto, he gets all dressed up in his tux. But on the way to the party, he and Pluto tangle with a trash can. Minnie sees Mickey with his torn clothes, and, to Mickey’s amazement, is not mad, for the party is a hard time’s party. She compliments him on his costume.
