On Ice

On Ice is Released

On this day in 1935, the Mickey Mouse cartoon short On Ice slid into theaters, and it seemed like the whole Disney animated family wanted to get into the act. There was Mickey Mouse, ice skating and showing off for Minnie. Goofy decides to go ice fishing, but rather than doing it the traditional way, he put chewing tobacco in the water. When they would come up to spit, he’d try to nab them. Donald Duck was particularly mischievous. He put ice skates on sleeping Pluto and then “meowed” to wake him up. If you keep a sharp eye out, you’ll even spot a brief cameo by Clarabelle Cow and Horace Horsecollar gliding by.
