No, It's Not Mickey
Smile, Darn Ya, Smile! (1931)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Foxy is running a train when he cheerfully agrees to take on a hippo who happens to be too large for his riding space. This event leads Foxy on a ride range of action. SMILE, DARN YA, SMILE! is an okay entry for the series. When the film started I'm sure many might mistake Foxy for Mickey Mouse because they share a lot of similarities and I think it's safe to say Merrie Melodies was ripping off Walt Disney with this character. For the most part this film is innocent enough, although there's certainly nothing here that really stands out or turns the film into a classic. The animation is a little crude but it works just fine to bring out the charm of Foxy.
