One of the best (and well-known) Mickey Mouse cartoons of all time
This is one of the best (and well-known) Mickey cartoons of all time, and another cartoon where Mickey goes against a giant (1933's Giantland and Mickey and The Beanstalk from 1947). And this cartoon is also a favorite of mine. The short is based on the fairy-tale by The Grimm Brothers,with Mickey as the heroic tailor who killed seven flies "with one blow!" And everyone mistook the flies with seven giants; Mickey a giant-killer. The short also was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Short Subject - Cartoons, but the award went to the short "Ferdinand The Bull." (*shrug shoulders*) Oh well.
I love the main title theme music. Also I love the scene where everyone spreads the story of Mickey killing seven giants; And the rumor reaches the ears of the king and his daughter Princess Minnie.
