Had this been made a decade later, this would have been a rather poor cartoon
Had this Disney cartoon been made a decade later, this would have probably been seen as a rather poor cartoon, as the plot itself and gags aren't all that great. However, for the 1930s (when most short cartoons were pretty lame compared to those from the golden days at Looney Tunes and MGM), it's pretty good. The animation and colors in particular are very nice. Plus, from a historical point of view it's both a great opportunity to see the older style Goofy and Donald characters which look far different from how they look now. And, also from a historical standpoint, it's a great chance to see many of the stars of the day lampooned as cartoon characters--making many cameos (that, again, aren't all that funny). You'll see many recognizable ones such as Clark Gable, W. C. Fields, Chaplin, Harpo Marx and Shirley Temple, but also many of the older stars who are unfortunately forgotten today, such as Harold Lloyd, Jack Holt and Edna May Oliver. Not super funny, but fascinating and worth a peek.
