Good but not great, has some interesting moments
23 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A vast majority of the Disney shorts are well worth watching, The Steeplechase is no exception. It is not one of the great ones, but it is still good. The pace may lack the energy of the Goofy sports-themed shorts, though it is still involving, and part of me did wish that we saw more of the Colonel. What was interesting to me were two things, the character designs of the stable boys which were like thinner versions of the Beagle boys and Mickey not considering it wrong to cheat to win- something that may throw some people off but one that worked within the short's concept. The story is simple in written quality but more complex than the Mickey rescues Minnie concept, and while the gags are not ingenious they are still very funny such as the horse going under hurdles and throwing Mickey over, the horse waddling into a pond and getting attacked by bees and the costume horse getting tangled up and getting stung repeatedly. The animation is very nice, the backgrounds are luscious and the character designs of the horses are very well done. The music and sound effects have always been an integral part of Disney shorts and with its lively character and orchestration The Steeplechase is no exception. Mickey is very likable as ever, and while not in much I couldn't help feeling for the Colonel. Overall, has some very interesting moments and it is a good short if not one of my favourites. 8/10 Bethany Cox
