They arrive, and Mickey's suitcase labeled "Jazz Fool" unfolds to a piano, which he plays (and sings about 8 notes). At the end, the piano attacks him. There is no dialogue, aside from the nonsense syllables sung. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Ah, the pre-Code cartoons, he waxed nostalgically.
27 August 2003 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

Prior to the creation of the Hays Office (named for Will Hays, the first official censor, who left Washington just ahead of the posse, having been part of the Harding administration, the most corrupt administration pre-1968) and the installation of the Code in the early 1930s by these paragons of virtue, films were more free-wheeling and cartoons were no exception. The Mickey of this timeframe was closer to Dennis the Menace than the Mouse he came to be just a few years hence. In some ways, this Mickey was more interesting and more fun. Music was almost always large part of cartoons in general and in the early days of sound, was hugely important just as something of a novelty. Excellent score here and hilarious almost from first frame to last. Well worth tracking down. Most recommended.
