Like an alternate version of "The Band Concert"...
21 March 2002 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

...except that Mickey, Donald and Goofy are now a triumvirate, each one being equally important. The triumvirate wouldn't last much longer. In fact, this is one of the last cartoons which all three carry together, and, despite its relative neglect, it's every bit as good as earlier ones like "Moving Day". (Perhaps the neglect is due to the misguided application of the loopier aspects of the auteur theory - which leaves critics free to ignore any cartoon not made by, and expressing the personality of, a "name" director like Chuck Jones.) The moment of sublime hilarity comes when Mickey et al. try to make music out of instruments which have been crushed in a lift.
