Mickey's first Technicolour, 3 November 2012
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

While Parade of the Award Nominees is not one of my favourites, it is significant for being Mickey Mouse's first Technicolour short. It is an entertaining and interesting short also in its own right. There is not much story here, and the alternate colour schemes seemed rather odd to me, I am so used to seeing Mickey in red shorts and Pluto being orangey-yellow that it was quite a shock for Mickey's shorts to be green and Pluto more brown then grey. Other than that, the animation is crisp and bouncy, and I think Minnie's dress was very fitting and a nice change from her usual outfits. The music bristles with energy, there is a cute gag with Pluto bringing up the rear with THE END on his tail and Clarabelle is a pleasure to see doing something rather than either in the background or not used at all. The fairytale background also intrigues, as well as the various nominees, the most famous one to me being Fredric March(and for good reason might I add). All in all, a significant short and a good if not outstanding one. 8/10 Bethany Cox
