A little disjointed but has wonderful music and some very funny gags
29 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have always had a soft spot for Disney and Mickey Mouse. Musical Farmer is interesting, but doesn't see them at their very best. The story, in three parts essentially, for me seemed disjointed, not because one or more of the parts is badly done, far from it, but because the three parts are completely different to one another. One is like a throwback to the earlier Mickey Mouse shorts, one serves a purpose for the musical number and the finale is like Mickey meets Alice in Wonderland or something. By all means an entertaining structure but I would have preferred for it to be more consistent in tone. The animation quality is mostly very good with vibrant and smooth background art and rounded character designs, Fanny's facial expressions are what stands out as especially outstanding though, but there is also the animation of the crows which looks as though it is reused all the time. This said, the music is just wonderful, like many other Disney cartoons it is a big part of Musical Farmer and is full of energetic rhythm and character, which is what makes the musical number aspect of the cartoon so fun to watch. The gags are very funny, the best being Mickey and Pluto in the scarecrow outfit, though Mickey as the Scotsman, everything stopping due to the surprise of the giant egg and the wonderfully wacky ending. The characters are great as well, Mickey gets a good chance to show his mischievous side and it really works well within the action, Minnie is likable also and Pluto is as cute as he ever was. So in a nutshell, this is a very good cartoon, the three parts forming the story could have been more even and I could've done without the recycled animation of the crows, but the music, gags and characters make it worthwhile. 8/10 Bethany Cox
