Recap / Mickey Mouse S 5 E 18 Carried Away

Go To

"Carried Away" is the 18th episode of Season 5 of the new Mickey Mouse (2013) series created by Paul Rudish for the Disney Channel and Disney.com. It is the 96th in the series. This is the last short released while Russi Taylor, the voice of Minnie, was alive.

As Minnie sings the title song on her ukulele, Mickey tries to keep from interrupting her as their rowboating date takes them on a wacky trip around the world.

Tropes:

  • The Amazon: Mickey and Minnie end up there and get attacked by snakes and piranhas.
  • Big "WHAT?!": When Minnie says that she wrote him a song, Mickey makes a low-pitched "Whaaaaaa?" as a computer-generated explosion occurs behind him.
  • The Cameo: Among the tourists at Niagara Falls are Daisy Duck, Clarabelle Cow, Clara Cluck, the Big Bad Wolf, the Three Little Wolves, Toby Tortoise, Max Hare, Elmer Elephant, Tillie Tiger, and two skeletons from The Skeleton Dance.
  • Comically Missing the Point: This exchange:
    Minnie: Oh, it's nothing special, but I poured my heart and soul into it! [pulls out ukulele]
    Mickey: You crammed your soul into a ukulele?!
  • Inevitable Waterfall: Mickey and Minnie almost end up going over Niagara Falls.
  • Mickey Mousing: Several moments in the short are timed to sync up precisely with the song Minnie's singing.

  • Musical Episode: Most of the short is set to Minnie's song.
  • Old-Fashioned Rowboat Date: Mickey and Minnie are on a canoe in a city canal. Minnie serenades Mickey on an ukulele, a gender reversal of the usual scenario. Of course, things don't go exactly according to plan.
  • Piranha Problem: Mickey deals with this when he and Minnie are launched into the Amazon.
  • Suspiciously Apropos Music: The lyrics of Minnie's song accurately match the stuff that happens around her and Mickey.
  • Tempting Fate: When Minnie asks Mickey if he'd like to hear her song, he replies "I wouldn't miss it for the world."
  • We Are Not Going Through That Again: It turns out Minnie was fully aware of everything going on as she sang her song, so she anchors the canoe so Mickey can listen without having to save them.
  • Wild Take: Mickey does one as they approach Niagara Falls.

  • World Tour: Mickey and Minnie's rowboat date ends up turning into one of these.
