A Frozen Mouse Tale
26 December 2002 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

A Walt Disney MICKEY MOUSE Cartoon.

Mickey, Minnie & friends are enjoying their afternoon ON ICE - until prankster Donald Duck suddenly finds himself in terrible peril...

Plenty of action & humor make this one of the Mouse's best cartoons and he generously shares the spotlight with his costars. Pluto's trouble on the slippery surface is great fun, but Goofy's attempts at ice fishing are hilarious. Sharp-eyed viewers will spot a mistake during the opening shot when Horace Horsecollar & Clarabelle Cow are in the foreground for a few seconds - at the same time they can also be spotted in the background as part of the large group of skaters darting about. Walt Disney supplies Mickey's squeaky voice, while Clarence "Ducky" Nash does the honors for Donald.

Walt Disney (1901-1966) was always intrigued by drawings. As a lad in Marceline, Missouri, he sketched farm animals on scraps of paper; later, as an ambulance driver in France during the First World War, he drew figures on the sides of his vehicle. Back in Kansas City, along with artist Ub Iwerks, Walt developed a primitive animation studio that provided animated commercials and tiny cartoons for the local movie theaters. Always the innovator, his ALICE IN CARTOONLAND series broke ground in placing a live figure in a cartoon universe. Business reversals sent Disney & Iwerks to Hollywood in 1923, where Walt's older brother Roy became his lifelong business manager & counselor. When a mildly successful series with Oswald The Lucky Rabbit was snatched away by the distributor, the character of Mickey Mouse sprung into Walt's imagination, ensuring Disney's immortality. The happy arrival of sound technology made Mickey's screen debut, STEAMBOAT WILLIE (1928), a tremendous audience success with its use of synchronized music. The SILLY SYMPHONIES soon appeared, and Walt's growing crew of marvelously talented animators were quickly conquering new territory with full color, illusions of depth and radical advancements in personality development, an arena in which Walt's genius was unbeatable. Mickey's feisty, naughty behavior had captured millions of fans, but he was soon to be joined by other animated companions: temperamental Donald Duck, intellectually-challenged Goofy and energetic Pluto. All this was in preparation for Walt's grandest dream - feature length animated films. Against a blizzard of doomsayers, Walt persevered and over the next decades delighted children of all ages with the adventures of Snow White, Pinocchio, Dumbo, Bambi & Peter Pan. Walt never forgot that his fortunes were all started by a mouse, or that simplicity of message and lots of hard work always pay off.
