I must be fair. THE THREE BLIND MICE appears to have been intended as an industrial safety film and not a film for the masses (or so I would hope). So, its obvious messages about safety in the factory would make sense in this context. Also, its very poor animation (relative to other cartoons of the mid-1940s) might be chalked up to this--you aren't going to have the high frame-rates, color (other than black--this is a color, I know) and smooth animation you'd have for a general release film because of the cost. Plus, seeing three rather stick-like mice being torn to pieces or smashed by machines isn't as upsetting as it would be if they were more lifelike or cute!! However, the overall effort when seen today is amazingly dull and uninspired. This is one film sponsored by the National Film Board of Canada that probably isn't worth your time and effort.
