Mickey and the Seal is a 1948 animated short film (6 1/2 minutes) from Disney, directed by Charles Nichols.

Mickey Mouse is visiting the zoo. He stops at the seal exhibit and chucks some fish at the seals. One seal, a particularly cute little one (named in outside materials as "Salty") decides he wants more fish so he hops into Mickey's picnic basket and gets a ride home. Pluto the Pup sees the seal in the picnic basket and tries to warn Mickey, but to no avail. The seal then causes havoc.
