But Mickey and his faithful horse, Pluto, come to the rescue, as usual, and the chase over the hills and dales is fast, furious and funny.

A Willie Whopper cartoon in which Willie is shipwrecked on a desert island, where he meets a cute little native. Cannibals arrive and are bent on making a meal of Willie, while the king is attracted by the girl. They finally escape, and with the aid of a friendly elephant they elude their pursuers. Fair.
Robinson Crusoe Isle
Packs of originality in this cartoon. Oswald is washed ashore with his radio. Robinson Crusoe hires him for his man Friday, the 13th; the other 12 having been eaten up by cannibals. What Oswald and his radio do to the cannibals when they come after him is mighty amusing. Before the reel ends, the goat that swallowed the radio is sitting on the Chief's throne and Oswald is giving orders on the island. There is a catchy vocal score, too."
