Quotes

[first lines]
Singers: [off-screen] In days of old / When knights were bold / And nightshirts held their sway, / A jolly minstrel strummed his lute / And sang this merry lay:
Mickey Mouse: I am a wandering minstrel. / I journey from afar. / My worldly goods are a sleepy old mule, / A song and a busted guitar. / Ha ha!

Lovely '30s B&W Mickey Mouse Cartoon
24 July 2002 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

This 1933 B&W cartoon is notable for the fact that it was made before the character 'Goofy' was known as 'Goofy'. He was called 'Dippy Dawg'. The opening scene containing a scroll listing the character,'The Prince' as 'Dippy Dawg'. That is the reason for the appearance of a tail, as noted by a prior reviewer. Goofy is not the only Disney character who underwent a metamorphosis, and it is interesting to compare the older characters with the ones that evolved, in this case 'Goofy'/'Dippy Dawg'.
