Well-animated, but Tex Avery did this sort of short first and better.
This short is well-executed technically (what else would Disney do in this time period?), but this short is only average. Tex Avery had already made this kind of short regularly and did them so much better. One character is supposed to have some task or is protecting something against antagonists and the remainder of the short consists of sight gags relating to the conflicting interests involved. The intentions here are good and it is an amusing short, but Avery was a comic genius at this sort of thing. Worth watching.
