Mickey's Polo Team is a Mickey Mouse cartoon that was released in 1936.


The Mickey Mousers take on the Movie Stars in a manic polo tournament.



Team: Mickey Mousers

Team: Movie Stars





  • Tanglefoot, Mickey's horse from the Mickey Mouse comic strip, appears on the poster for this short, despite that he does not actually appear in the film itself.
  • This is one of six cartoons that plays at the Main Street Cinema at Disneyland, albeit without sound or color (like a silent movie).
  • Donald Duck is the only speaking character who only says "polo" all the time.
  • Will Rogers was originally going to be one of the celebrities on the polo team, but he tragically died in a plane crash, and was replaced by Charlie Chaplin.
  • Most of the celebrities' horses are also caricatures of themselves.
  • As surviving animation drafts show, there was going to be an extra audience scene with a caricature of Mae West sitting with Hop the Grasshopper from The Grasshopper and the Ants (complete with a snippet of "The World Owes Me a Living" playing in the background).[1]
  • The golf ball stuck in Donald is probably still stuck inside him to this day, this might be one of the reasons why he is still angry today.
