Mickey and the Scorpions decide to go on a big game hunt. The kids go out into the woods, only find themselves up against real wild animals (actually escaped animals from a zoo).


This is one of the few known silent shorts with Billy Barty portraying the role of 'Mickey's Kid Brudder'. He would appear throughout most of the sound era of the series as 'Billy McGuire'.
