Polo in Toon Town
10 August 2008 | by (Wellington, Florida, United States) – See all my reviews

I can't help but to think of the making of the short and Walt Disney's obsession with the game of polo. In reviewing an article by Wade Sampson titled Horsing Around with Walt, we are reminded that it was directed by Dave Hand, who had to be preoccupied with is upcoming directorial responsibilities for Snow White. Additionally, I learned that there was supposed to be considerable footage devoted to a caricature of Will Rogers, a polo-playing pal of Walt Disney. The fact that Rogers died in a plane crash while Mickey's Polo Team was in production led to his caricature being removed from the cartoon. The short emerged as a homage to polo in Hollywood in the 1930s and the many entertainers who played or attended the matches. The actor's used to have their polo handicaps published in Variety. The hanks on the field of Mickey's Polo Team were indicative of the feelings about the game in Los Angeles at the time. The fact that I, too, am a polo fan might shade my judgment of the short, but I found it very amusing.
