The Farmer was quite an enjoyable musical Oswald the Lucky Rabbit cartoon for Walter Lantz and Bill Nolan
30 November 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this Walter Lantz-Bill Nolan Oswald the Lucky Rabbit cartoon on YouTube. In this one, Oswald, his girlfriend Kitty, and Pete are working on a farm. Then they all attend the barn dance later that night with Pete failing to cut in on Oswald and Kitty when they dance as he has to settle for a skunk (which he shows his disgust for by putting a clothes pin on his nose). Oh, and while Pete can be pretty cruel to Oswald, Oswald isn't above a little cruelty himself as when he grabs Pete's wooden leg! Still, this is quite an enjoyable musical cartoon with some inventive gags to keep one entertained laughing. Maybe that's because among the animators are Pinto Colvig, Clyde Geronimi, and Fred "Tex" Avery. Colvig would be better known as a voice artist who's Goofy is still beloved today. Geronimi was, along with Hamilton Luske and Wilford Jackson, a director of some of the great Disney animated features of the '50s. And Avery would helm some of the most innovative animated shorts of both Warner Bros. and M-G-M during the '30s and '40s. So with all that said, I highly recommend The Farmer. P.S. A kid named Mickey Rooney does Oswald's voice here. And at the end, the chrous sings "Boop-boop-a-doop, boop-boop-a-doop, boop-boop-a-doop, that's alllll, folks!" making one think if they were paying tribute or making fun of rival cartoon studios...
