Animation Cel Drawing of Mickey Mouse and Pelican

Tugboat Mickey is a Walt Disney Studios Mickey Mouse short cartoon that was released in 1940 by RKO Radio Pictures. It was directed by Clyde Geronomi. Mickey is performing routine maintenance on his tugboat (with interference from an inebriated pelican) when a call comes on the radio that there’s a sinking ship needing assistance. This is a great animation drawing of Mickey and said drunken Pelican.

Sadly, Mickey’s crew consists of Donald and Goofy, so getting underway to help is not easy. Goofy has to fight a boiler’s door to get it stoked with coal (and when he succeeds, he overfills it) and Donald gets tangled up in the machinery. Not to mention that nobody casts off, so they drag half the dock along with them. The overworked boiler soon explodes.
