Hawaiian Holiday is a Mickey Mouse short released 24 September 1937.


Mickey and his friends are vacationing in Hawaii. Minnie dances in a grass skirt while Mickey plays a slide guitar, Donald plays a ukulele, and Pluto chases the waves. Meanwhile, Goofy goes surfing, but when he rushes toward a wave it seems to have a mind of its own, ebbing as soon as Goofy starts running toward it, so Goofy hits his head on a rock. The wave then flows back and washes Goofy around, eventually leaving his head stuck in the sand. Mickey has a problem with his guitar, while Minnie and Donald trade places. However, when Donald takes his turn with the skirt, he dances too close to the fire and accidentally sets it on fire. He quickly dunks himself in a pool to put the blaze out, and comes out with a starfish stuck to his tail.

Donald throws the starfish off his bottom and it lands right in front of Pluto. After Pluto sniffs it, it runs away. Pluto chases it right up to the waves where he gets buried in the sand. The starfish hops over him, hits him on the nose, and escapes while Pluto looks on in frustration. Goofy tries his luck with the waves again and is actually able to get a swell, but it breaks beneath him and washes his board away. As Goofy searches underwater for his board, another wave comes and drives his board into his pants, leaving him struggling to get it out.

Meanwhile, Pluto is sniffing at a seashell. A wave comes in and knocks him off his feet, and leaves the shell stuck to his nose. Pluto tries to shake the shell off, but it gets stuck on his bottom instead. He tries and tries to get it off, but can't seem to. There is a crab living in the shell, which clamps onto Pluto's tail, which makes him yelp. The crab begins walking in a certain pattern which Pluto follows until they reach the surf, where a wave comes in and buries Pluto. As with the starfish, the crab tortures him by hitting him on the nose before departing.

Goofy tries one last time to catch a wave successfully, but the wave throws him off his board, hits him with it, and catapults him into the sand where he is stopped by his board, looking like a gravestone. Mickey, Minnie, and Donald laugh at him, and when he pops out unharmed, they continue enjoying their vacation.
