Powers and abilities

Salty is a baby seal who first appeared in Mickey's Circus. His later roles would often pair him up with Pluto.


He is a seal who tends to show up in typical seal locations (the circus, the beach, the zoo, the arctic) and annoy Pluto into chasing him, causing Pluto to get into dangerous predicaments. Salty typically saves him, leading Salty and Pluto to become best friends—until Salty's next appearance, when the cycle begins again.

Otherwise, Salty is just a mischievous little seal pup but means no harm to anyone, as he is mostly driven by his childlike curiosity. And even when he gets in trouble, he's slippery and clever enough to avoid it.


Salty's debut appearance came in Mickey's Circus (1936), in which he tormented Donald Duck. Pluto's Playmate (1942), Rescue Dog (1947) and the particularly famous Mickey and the Seal (1948) followed.

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse

  • Despite being a seal, it looks more like a sea lion than a true seal.
