Any other year, this one would have probably won the Oscar
"Brave Little Tailor" was nominated for the Oscar for Best Animated Short but lost to "Ferdinand the Bull". Any other year, this cartoon probably would have won but "Ferdinand" was simply magnificent and charming. Regardless, I strongly recommend you see both films.
This short begins with Mickey killing seven flies at the same time. People THINK he meant giants and he's appointed by the king to be the Royal Giant-Killer! Mickey wants no part of this until he learns he'll also receive the hand of Princess Minnie--so he agrees to take out the giant. Can our brave little mouse possibly defeat an enormous and not particularly nice giant?!
The biggest thing that stood out for me about this film was the outstanding animation. It might just be the best looking MIckey cartoon ever--with exquisite backgrounds and animations. It is an artistic masterpiece. Fortunately, it's not all great artwork--with a lovely story and lots of clever touches to make the entire package worth seeing. Plus, it was nice that the Disney folks came up for a way for Mickey to defeat the giant that wouldn't compromise Mickey's character, as he's supposed to be a genuinely nice individual--not some killer. Overall, I very strongly recommend you see this one--it's a classic.
