Music With The Mice
22 January 2003 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

A Walt Disney MICKEY MOUSE Cartoon.

Mickey, Minnie & their friends are off to THE SHINDIG in an old barn, where there will be plenty of music and dancing for every animal in the place.

There's lots of fun in this little black & white film. The Mice get to display their instrumental virtuosity, with Mickey playing the violin, drums & harmonica, while Minnie bangs away on the piano. Music mavens will recognize 'Arkansas Traveler,' 'Turkey in the Straw', 'Pop! Goes the Weasel' & 'Old Folks at Home' among the tunes performed. Censorship eyebrows went up at the first glimpse of Clarabelle Cow, where she is shown perusing Elinor Glyn's naughty 1907 novel "Three Weeks" in the nude. Notice the hilarious way in which the animators dealt with obscuring her prodigious udder. Later, teamed with perennial boyfriend Horace Horsecollar, the two prove to be the hottest couple on the dance floor.

Walt Disney (1901-1966) was always intrigued by drawings. As a lad in Marceline, Missouri, he sketched farm animals on scraps of paper; later, as an ambulance driver in France during the First World War, he drew figures on the sides of his vehicle. Back in Kansas City, along with artist Ub Iwerks, Walt developed a primitive animation studio that provided animated commercials and tiny cartoons for the local movie theaters. Always the innovator, his ALICE IN CARTOONLAND series broke ground in placing a live figure in a cartoon universe. Business reversals sent Disney & Iwerks to Hollywood in 1923, where Walt's older brother Roy became his lifelong business manager & counselor. When a mildly successful series with Oswald The Lucky Rabbit was snatched away by the distributor, the character of Mickey Mouse sprung into Walt's imagination, ensuring Disney's immortality. The happy arrival of sound technology made Mickey's screen debut, STEAMBOAT WILLIE (1928), a tremendous audience success with its use of synchronized music. The SILLY SYMPHONIES soon appeared, and Walt's growing crew of marvelously talented animators were quickly conquering new territory with full color, illusions of depth and radical advancements in personality development, an arena in which Walt's genius was unbeatable. Mickey's feisty, naughty behavior had captured millions of fans, but he was soon to be joined by other animated companions: temperamental Donald Duck, intellectually-challenged Goofy and energetic Pluto. All this was in preparation for Walt's grandest dream - feature length animated films. Against a blizzard of doomsayers, Walt persevered and over the next decades delighted children of all ages with the adventures of Snow White, Pinocchio, Dumbo, Bambi & Peter Pan. Walt never forgot that his fortunes were all started by a mouse, or that simplicity of message and lots of hard work will always pay off.
