The Mail Pilot
May 13, 1933
is a The Mail Pilot Mickey Mouse cartoon that debuted on May 13, 1933.
Mickey the mail pilot is entrusted with a chest of money. He battles rain and snow, but his biggest battle is against Pete, who has a plane equipped with a machine gun and a harpoon cannon. Mickey's plane quickly loses its wings and propeller to Pete's armaments, but he improvises a helicopter blade with a clothes-drying rack, then, when that gives way, a replacement prop from a windmill. At this point, Pete harpoons him, and Mickey drags Pete through a bell tower, demolishing Pete's plane. Mickey delivers the money to Minnie and brings Pete to the authorities.
At around the same time the short was originally released, the
Mickey Mouse comic strip published a storyline based on the cartoon, which ran from February 27th through June 10th.
