Back in time with Mr Mouse
1 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Nifty Nineties has to be one of my favourite Mickey Mouse cartoons. The Technicolour animation is beautiful, vibrantly coloured in fluid in movement. Equally as wonderful is the music, from the nostalgic strains of the strings as Mickey and Minnie walk into the vaudeville theatre to the jauntiness of the Fred Ward-caricatured Two Boys from Illinois scene the incidental music is a sheer delight, while of the songs Father Dear Father is a perfect merging of image and music and is incredibly emotional, Strolling Through the Park is a song I appreciate much more now(for some reason it was always the song I remembered least from The Nifty Nineties) and In The Good Old Summertime is wonderfully nostalgic and amorous. I loved seeing the fashions, cars and bicycles of the 1890s too, and also the cameos of Goofy, Donald, Daisy, Donald's Three Nephews and a horse that looks oddly reminiscent of the horse from Wind in the Willows. And if you're wondering where the why did the chicken cross the road? joke came from, look no further than here. Overall, a timeless and still wonderful cartoon, that fills me with nostalgia and happiness every single time I watch it. 10/10 Bethany Cox
