Good (not great) early Disney, 4 January 2001

This is the first Mickey Mouse short to actually be nominated for an Oscar, losing to Flowers and Trees. The real "mouse that roared" does nothing very special or elaborate in this cartoon. It's cute and enjoyable and I suppose it's representative of the black and white efforts which Disney was doing at the time. Probably more impressive in 1931, it's still worth watching today. It runs on the INK AND PAINT CLUB on Disney Channel. Recommended.
