This early Disney version of Cinderella is worth a look for his fans
18 January 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

Nearly 28 years before making the classic feature-length animated version of Cinderella, Walt Disney made a short 7-minute version for the Laugh-O-Grams studio in Kansas City. In this one, the title character is doing dishes with her cat while her stepsisters are lying around reading the papers (there is no evil stepmother here). I better mention that this takes place in the '20s with flappers and cars. Meanwhile, the prince is out hunting for bears (in this sequence, the bears are dancing just before the prince ties them up in one rope!). After he sends his cat with the invitations, that cat gets a little injured but when someone asks if he's all right, he hits him with his stilt! After the stepsisters leave Cinderella and the cat alone in the house, the fairy godmother gets them a car with a flapper dress for the girl. If you know the story you can probably guess what happens at this point on. I will also mention that Cinderella and the prince look similar to the characters in the first cartoon Disney made, Little Red Riding Hood. The animation here is actually an improvement from his first two that I saw on YouTube. So on that note, I highly recommend this first version of the famous fairy tale made by the legendary Walt Disney.
