Disney Spoofs Dumas, 22 August 2000
Author: Ron Oliver (revilorest@juno.com) from Forest Ranch, CA

A Walt Disney SILLY SYMPHONY Cartoon Short.

The THREE BLIND MOUSEKETEERS set about getting their cheesy meal, despite the best efforts of villainous Captain Katt to destroy them.

An enjoyable, though unremarkable, spoof of swashbuckling movies. Disney would revive the term `Mouseketeer' two decades later for use in the Mickey Mouse Club TV show. Katt seems to owe a lot to the personality of character actor Noah Beery; and is that Walt vocalizing the skinny mouse?

The SILLY SYMPHONIES, which Walt Disney produced for a ten year period beginning in 1929, are among the most interesting of series in the field of animation. Unlike the Mickey Mouse cartoons in which action was paramount, with the Symphonies the action was made to fit the music. There was little plot in the early Symphonies, which featured lively inanimate objects and anthropomorphic plants & animals, all moving frantically to the soundtrack. Gradually, however, the Symphonies became the school where Walt's animators learned to work with color and began to experiment with plot, characterization & photographic special effects. The pages of Fable & Fairy Tale, Myth & Mother Goose were all mined to provide story lines and even Hollywood's musicals & celebrities were effectively spoofed. It was from this rich soil that Disney's feature-length animation was to spring. In 1939, with SNOW WHITE successfully behind him and PINOCCHIO & FANTASIA on the near horizon, Walt phased out the SILLY SYMPHONIES; they had run their course & served their purpose.
