It doesn't get better than this. After some improvements a year
earlier, Oswald's image has reached its peak. During his early days on
screen, the rabbit wore nothing other than his trademark shorts. But
overtime, Walter Lantz made Oswald more decent by putting on more
outfit. It should be noted that the inclusion of things like gloves and
shoes are a Disney influence, considering Mickey was among the first
characters to wear such stuff.
As for the film, the gags are adequately humorous. Also, the soundtrack composed by James Dietrich is pretty catchy. Although the big predator loses something in the beginning, things still ended up good for both Oswald and that huge animal.
Disney may have left Oswald in 1928 but his influence on the character would live on for the next seven years.
A sleeping tiger has his tail stolen to serve as a barber pole in this
decent but unremarkable entry in the OSWALD THE LUCKY RABBIT series
from Walter Lantz' studio.
It take about four and a half minutes for the tiger to wake up after the ugly deed is done, and meanwhile Oswald is back in his barber shop, dealing with customers and his animated barber chair and cash register. This was a period when the 'rubber tube' style of animation of the 1920s and early 1930s was growing stale, and the 'everything is alive!' style of gag was very popular. There is, however, something so bizarre about these two bits of animation that they seem mildly disturbing. Still, Oswald's manner of dealing wit his customers' beards is fairly classic slapstick adapted to cartoon animals, and makes for a worthwhile time waster.
