Just the first scene for the short. Mickey, who had spent many years becoming dull and boring had been reduced to a mere Straight Man even to his OWN DOG, has forgotten his anniversary with Minnie. This kind of plot is something one would see with Donald, but Mickey reacts very differently from the duck and it is hilarious. The fact that they managed to make Mickey Mouse flawed and funny again is awesome. This short doesn't scare me. I love it simply because Mickey is how he should be. A funny character in his own right.
