Oswald drives a train into the sunny south, where he cakewalks with Kitty and fronts a minstrel-show inspired revue on the street in this mediocre Oswald the Lucky Rabbit from Walter Lantz' studio.
This cartoon is divided into two parts. In the first, Oswald drives the train and it's mostly gags involving the train doing gags that are amusing because of their impossibility. The second half is the revue segment, as Oswald and Kitty do a cakewalk, play musical instruments, and various animals do routines that involve a lot of watermelons. It won't please the modern audience because of the racism. It shouldn't have pleased the contemporary audience because few of the gags were particularly novel. If you cut this one off at the halfway mark, you'll have some fun.
