Description


Is a story of wizard's meek assistant who attempts to work some of the magical feats of his master, before he knows how to properly control them. Mickey plays the role of the apprentice, who causes a broom to come to "life" and perform his chore.
Mickey directs the broom in his chore but falls asleep and dreams that he is a powerful wizard controlling the mighty seas and starry skies.
Awakening to find that the basin is overflowing and the broom is still filling it up.
Mickey races to the wizard's spellbook looking for a counter-spell, but to no avail.
After nearly drowning in a giant whirlpool, Mickey is rescued by the wizard, who magically halts the flood and causes the brooms to vanish.
