Mickey's Delayed Date
Mickey's Delayed Date is a cartoon produced by Walt Disney Productions, distributed by RKO Radio Pictures and released on October 3, 1947. The film was directed by Charles Nichols and was animated by Jerry Hathcock, George Kreisl, George Nicholas, Harry Holt, Bob Youngquist, Marvin Woodward, and Max Cox with effects animation by Jack Boyd and Andy Engman. It was the 120th short in the Mickey Mouse film series to be released, and the only one produced that year.
It was the last Mickey Mouse cartoon featuring Walt Disney as Mickey Mouse.
Minnie Mouse is calling Mickey to remind him about their date, which he has totally forgotten about while sleeping on the couch. With the help of Pluto, Mickey gets dressed for the date, but loses the tickets to the show on his way out the door. Pluto takes the tickets to Mickey, after his tuxedo has been ruined by water from a passing car, and then Minnie arrives and tells him he has a cute costume for the "hard times" costume party.
