Mickey's Surprise Party is a short that debuted in 1939 at the New York World's Fair as a promotional short for Nabisco. Since then, it has often been edited to suit the snack products in question. It is also notably the first cartoon to feature Mickey and Minnie's 1939 redesigns.

Synopsis

Minnie bakes cookies to impress Mickey. Just as she leaves, however, her dog, Fifi, accidentally knocks popcorn into her batter while chasing a fly. Minnie, none the wiser, puts the batter in the oven. Minnie then prepares for the visit, as does Fifi. Mickey and Pluto then arrive. Minnie accepts Mickey's flowers, but Fifi rejects Pluto's bone for some reason. Unfortunately, Minnie has baked the cookies too long, burning them. As she takes them out, the corn starts popping, but not before Pluto eats one, leading to him having an exploding cookie stuck in his belly while Mickey fights the burnt cookies with a water sprayer. Minnie is then seen crying on the couch, saying that she wanted to bake cookies just like Mickey's mom. Mickey tries to comfort her, saying "My mother used to burn them all the time!" She continues to cry, however, which leads to Fifi crying too. Mickey suddenly had an idea, and leaves with Pluto. When they come back, they have several Nabisco products, including: Ritz Crackers, Oreos, Lorna Doone, Barnum's Animal Crackers, Social Tea biscuits, Fig Newtons (Mickey's and Minnie's favorite), and Milk Bones (which Fifi accepts and kisses Pluto). The film ends with Minnie kissing Mickey all over his face. The cartoon fades to "The End", which fades to the Nabisco logo.

Trivia

  • When this short was released on the 1998 VHS The Spirit of Mickey, the Nabisco snacks were edited to be generic-appearing snack foods, and the audio when Mickey arrives with the snacks has been overdubbed by Wayne Allwine and Russi Taylor.
  • Walt Disney hated the idea of public commercials for some reason, and swore he would not do one until then.
  • This is one of three Mickey Mouse cartoons (the other two being Minnie's Yoo Hoo and The Mad Doctor), and one of only a few Disney cartoons in general to be in the public domain, and is freely distributed across online video websites such as YouTube.
  • The cartoon was shown at the 1939 New York World's Fair.
  • This is notable for being the first Disney commercial sponsoring a company.
  • Clarence Nash is the voice of Pluto in this short, not Pinto Colvig.
