One of my personal favourite Mickey Mouse cartoons
26 September 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not my favourite, but up there. The animation is mostly excellent with beautiful colours and fluid backgrounds. The character designs aren't quite up there, but they are acceptable. The music has always been one of my favourite assets about these Silly Symphonies, and because it is so jaunty and energetic here Brave Little Tailor is no exception. The writing is funny with the parts with the giant amusing and I loved it when Minnie kisses Mickey and the story is charming. Mickey is a very cute and likable hero, and all the support characters make an impression while never bland. All in all, a great cartoon. 9/10 Bethany Cox
