The Whoopee Party is a Mickey Mouse short animated film first released on September 17, 1932.

Plot[edit]

Mickey Mouse and friends have a party in which Minnie Mouse is playing the piano while Mickey, Goofy (then Dippy Dawg), and Horace Horsecollar are preparing some snacks. Meanwhile, a police group, who they have been called for an emergency recently, have also been invited to the party. This short was also featured in the House of Mouse episode "Dennis the Duck".

Production[edit]

The scene of Mickey dancing with an enormous pig was lifted from the 1930 short The Shindig.[1]

Reception[edit]

  • In The Disney Films, critic Leonard Maltin says: "There is an incredible amount of action on the screen; an opening shot shows a score of couples dancing to the music. Later, when the party starts to jump, every single inch of picture is filled with dancing figures. What is more, nothing is out of bounds for joining the fun: a pair of shirts on the ironing board are as likely to get up and dance as any of the animals at the party."[2]
