Wow, this is the most plot less of any of the cartoons I've seen in the Disney Treasures DVD "Mickey in Black & White, volume 2". The entire film consists of Mickey standing on stage playing the violin! That's it! As a result, it's hard to like this one--even if it is one of the few early Mickey cartoons where you also get to hear him speak. In this case, while the cartoon is only about 7 minutes long, it seems three times longer due to the total lack of anything interesting--unless your idea of thrills is seeing Mickey wildly playing the violin. Decent animation cannot make up for the fact that this one is a big letdown. Dull and unappealing--and this from a man who loves Mickey!
