Storyline

Oswald the Rabbit is taking part in a race across the Atlantic, from New York to Paris by plane, with a grand prize of $25,000. A trickster competing in the race puts chewing gum on Oswald's tires so he's not able to start with the others, and to make matters worse, his plane's wings fly away without him. He improvises by strapping a wooden plank and a couple of balloons to a wiener dog, and is shortly back in the race once again, where the hijinks continue unabated. Written by jjwbenso

This played out much like Lindberg's famous flight.
21 January 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

There is a $25,000 prize for anyone flying over the ocean to Paris, so in this Oswald cartoon, lots of goofy flying machines compete. However, a chubby jerk cheats so that the others cannot get the prize. This is odd, as he did seem to have the best plane. As for Oswald, he flies a weinerdog across the ocean! It's all very silly and surreal--exactly the sort of stuff that made these Oswald cartoons so popular. Well done and fun.

By the way, if you see this film chances are it will look and sound like the version I saw. Originally, it was silent--no sound effects or music. But with the success of "Steamboat Willie", a lot of cartoons made before it were re-released with added sound effects and music.
