This classic black&white Mickey Mouse cartoon was released on March 14, 1929, and was the first of twelve Mickey Mouse cartoon released these year. Mickey wants to take Minnie to a dance, but Pete's (Pegleg Pete) flashy car beats Mickey's horse-drawn wagon as her transportation of choice. At the dance, Mickey uses some balloons to make himself light on his feet- the perfect dancing partner- but this doesn't keep Minnie at his side for long, either. Credits Director : Walt Disney. Animation : Ub Iwerks. Music : Carl Stalling.
