Storyline

Micky and friends put on a revue for the orphans. Donald recites nursery rhymes, but the orphans torment him. Horace, Goofy, and Clarabelle do a dance number. Donald tries again. Clara clucks a song while Mickey plays piano (with support from an unseen orchestra). Donald returns, and the orphans finally send a parade of bricks and eggs on balloons over him and use slingshots to drop them on his head. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Redo of the 1934 Version
20 January 2003 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This short was made during the fallow period in Disney shorts: Disney was concentrating on feature production, the strike that would result in much of his staff going off to form UPA was on and the result was that his bread-and-butter work, the shorts distributed by RKO, showed a severe drop in script quality. It was not until the the following year, when he 'exiled' some of his more talented people who, he felt, had supported the strike, to the shorts department, that quality would be re-established.

In the meantime, shorts like this and MICKEY'S BIRTHDAY PARTY resulted, basically redrawn version of earlier successes.

Do we need to speculate on why all the 'orphans' look exactly like Mickey?
