That given, this one was pretty funny. Mickey and Minnie's facial
expressions as they try to escape from Daisy were good, and the ending
"wild ride" was fairly inventive, although a little unbelievable. One
of the things that makes this series different from the classic shorts
is that, while Disney tried to keep a bit of cartoon "realism" in his
work, these shorts don't seem to conform to any consistent physical
laws. So, in the past where there might have been some danger in going
over a waterfall, here Daisy just drives down it (and then back up!)
I think it's this idea that anything can happen that prevents us from
feeling any real drama or tension in most of these shorts.
Still, it's Daisy's personality that makes me lower the score on
this one. Funny as it was, it just seems to be coming out of left field.
I keep wondering if they're setting us up for a short where the gang
gets their revenge on Daisy.
