Made before the IOC became so litigious!
24 November 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

My assumption is that the title of this cartoon would not be used today, as the International Olympic Committee has been so very litigious in recent years if anyone dares to use the word 'olympics' or their precious symbol. Perhaps I am wrong...I dunno.

This cartoon has a very simple plot--all the barnyard animals have come to watch or participate in their own Olympic contests. And, at the end, they have a sort of decathlon (but with only four events). It all boils down to Mickey Mouse and an incredibly buff creature that looks a lot like Pete.

As this cartoon has lots and lots of gags, no singing and terrific animation, it turns out to be a very enjoyable short film indeed.
