| Wow...Mickey sure is a jerk in this one!
As was always the case during this era, the artwork in this Disney short is gorgeous...second to none. The backgrounds, quality of the animation and vivid colors are something to behold. That being said, this is not one of the better Mickey cartoons as it presents a rather mean-spirited Mickey Mouse.

The film starts with Mickey practicing alchemy. He creates a formula that causes creatures to instantly develop nerves of steel and great strength...and lots of aggression. He sprays it on a variety of subjects and you then see them become macho and angry! But often Mickey seems to do this just to torment the animals...and it's inexplicable why he would torment Pluto later in the cartoon. Weird....and a bit mean.
