Interesting enough, but not a cartoon that everybody is going to like
18 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I've always loved Disney and Mickey Mouse, and while Pioneer Days is interesting especially for when it was made I've never exactly loved it. It has impressive things sure, it is very well animated, fluid and the black and white is atmospherically used. The music is rousing and enhances the action very well, and I enjoyed the use of O Susannah and the love ballad which had a very subtle use of play-on-words. Mickey and Minnie are endearing too, and I liked that Minnie stands up for herself and saves Mickey. I liked also the brief appearances of what looked of Clarabelle and Horace, the dancing of the Indians is well-choreographed and the conflict between the Indians and Pioneers is thrilling. On the other hand, while the story is nice on the whole and I did find the contrast from the peaceful life of the Pioneers to the war-like one of the Indians interesting, it doesn't really get going until the invasion of the waggon camp which is halfway through the cartoon. Mickey's voice sounds a tad different at times as well, sounding slightly lower in pitch than it usually does in the Silly Symphony cartoons. But what strikes me as controversial is the portrayal of the Indians, not everybody will find this but they are stereotypical(like other cartoons of the times, especially Cannibal Capers) and some may take offence at their rather bestial personalities. So overall, interesting and I think good cartoon, but depending on your perception the Indians may not be to your tastes. 7/10 Bethany Cox
