TRADER MICKEY was released in 1932, and sees Mickey captured by cannibals. Not one of the more politically correct shorts. Some of the early Mickey shorts are really quite interesting in their scope and material, first they simply cashed in on synchronization to music and then they became mini adventure films spoofing the popular features of the day.
My guess is that TRADER MICKEY was a parody of the MGM film TRADER HORN of 1931. Here is the first page of the story outline. Anybody know where I could maybe find the second page?
