The story of "The Simple Things" is that Mickey Mouse and his dog Pluto go fishing. Pluto has a run-in with a clam, that eventually lodges in poor Pluto's mouth.Mickey thinks the clam is Pluto's tongue and can't understand why his dog keeps begging for more food! After they are able to get rid of the clam, Mickey attempts to use minnows as fish bait; but his plan it thwarted by a very hungry seagull. Soon other seagulls arrive, chasing away poor Mickey and Pluto. This is a great original production cel of Mickey Mouse from the Disney short "The Simple Things, " 1953. He is full figure, eyes open, and smiling while fishing with his rod and reel; while sitting on a rock. A wonderful image of Mickey Mouse enjoying a relaxing day from the last Mickey Mouse cartoon short film.
