Storyline

Oswald is trying the hobo life, but an encounter with a copper takes the keenness out of his freedom. Life looks promising again when he meets Brother Bear hobo [Pete] who is boiling coffee over a campfire. Oswald donates an egg to the repast-which is promptly stolen. Suddenly they see a freshly-roasted chicken in a pantry window. Oswald is made to act as purloiner. His first attempt at theft is squashed by a ferocious bulldog. Finally a neat-but-not-flashy set of long willies on a line acts as end-man, and trolleys the bird to Ozzie. Foiled again (for a policeman happens on the scene), down the unfriendly road rushes our hero. Then the policeman seizes the fowl. The bulldog, spying this, chases the officer into the far horizon, much to Oswald's glee. Written by David Gerstein

For Once The Rabbit Is White
22 February 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sources indicate that this film was meant to use sound. For some reason, the soundtrack didn't survive. I've been seeing the film for months online which uses substitute music. Some of which are jazz tunes from trumpeter Red Nichols.

In the story we have Oswald and a bear who are both penniless, thus they're willing to do anything to fill their stomachs. Perhaps the most interesting scene is when the bunny tries to take a roast turkey from a window sill, only to get chased by a dog. The dog got its jaws on Oswald and removes the pelt off of him. And voilà, we have a white rabbit. For a long time, I thought the bunny is only white in 1935 but this film probably shows the first time he turned into that colour.

This is perhaps one of Oswald's most entertaining shorts.
