The Four Musicians of Bremen is another of Disney's earliest cartoons, 18 January 2008
Author: tavm from Baton Rouge, La.

According to the IMDb list of Walt Disney's directorial achievements, this was the second earliest animated short he ever made (the first being Little Red Riding Hood). In this Laugh-O-Gram, we see four animals running from bricks being thrown after them by humans. The last of them, a cat, keeps appearing and disappearing at various points in this sequence. They stop at a river where three of them play music while the cat tries to catch a fish that walks out of the river and jumps away each time the cat tries to hit him with a board. I'll stop there and say that was pretty amusing as was a later sequence where some human men shoot cannon balls at the house the four animals are staying with the cat pulling a Felix and using his tail to hit one of those balls from the roof and then riding on another of them (or was it the same one? I can't remember). Pretty primitive but worth a look for anyone curious about the legendary Disney's earliest works.
