    A Walt Disney MICKEY MOUSE Cartoon.

    Mickey & Minnie must try to escape after being SHANGHAIED by evil ship's captain Pegleg Pete & his nefarious crew.

    Pirate Pete has kidnapped Mickey and Minnie and has them tied up. As Pete prepares to have his way with Minnie, Mickey escapes and gets a swordfish off the wall; a swordfight with Pete ensues. Mickey gets out of the cabin and on deck; he hoists Minnie up onto the mast. Pete summons his crew, and Mickey fights them off with a cannon, shooting pots and pans, a stove, and ultimately a harpoon before winning Minnie and the ship back for
    good. (Source: IMDB)
