"Canine Caddy" was directed by Clyde Geronimi and released on May 30, 1941. This was the second to last Mickey Mouse cartoon of 1941 and just two more Mickey cartoons were made in 1942; after which Mickey did not appear again until 1947. For "Canine Caddy" Walt Disney was the voice of Mickey Mouse and Pinto Colvig provided the voice of both Pluto and the gopher.
The plot of "Canine Caddy" is that Mickey Mouse is on the links going golfing, and Pluto is his caddy. Besides the usual caddy duties like carrying the bag of golf clubs and removing the flag from the hole cup; Pluto also chases after the ball and once he finds it he points. However, when the ball lands in a gopher hole, Pluto begins to chase the gopher. They chase each other throughout the golf course and finally find there way to a small hill. Mickey is on top of the hill getting ready to putt his ball into the cup, when Pluto and the gopher's chase makes so many holes in the hill, that it finally collapses.
This is a fantastic drawing of Mickey Mouse as he is getting ready to hit his golf ball with his golf club. A wonderful full figure eyes open drawing of Mickey Mouse, with his eyes on the ball. The drawing is rendered in red and graphite pencils and is from one of the finest Walt Disney shorts. A great addition to any animation art collection!
