Storyline

A man stops for gas on his way to dig for gold. The man at the station tells him what it was like back in 1849 in San Francisco, which we see. A sucker is hauled off the street and sat down at a card game; he dashes off as soon as someone shouts "they found gold in the hills" but others stake claims before he can. He ends up chopping off a cliff, falling down, and landing in the hospital. The doctor gives him news of another gold strike and he rushes out to begin panning. After some more mining gags and a song, we see a montage of more failed gold strikes. Back to the present day, where the storyteller claims to have sworn off gold, until a rider passes through with news of another strike, when he trades the station for the car and sets out after the gold.

Doesn't quite strike gold
12 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

Love animation, it was a big part of my life as a child, particularly Disney, Looney Tunes and Tom and Jerry, and still love it whether it's film, television or cartoons.

Despite what my review title may insinuate, 'Gold Rush Daze' is far from a bad cartoon. It's in no way a classic and there are far better cartoons that are funnier and with more memorable characters, but it is not deserving of its relative obscurity status. It is not hard to see why 'Gold Rush Daze' won't click with some.

'Gold Rush Daze' is an amusing cartoon but it is never hilarious (maybe there could have been more too), and a few parts don't hold up as well as they could and date things a bit. The characters in no way bring down the cartoon but they are easily forgettable.

The story is as flimsy as they come and it does lack energy in parts.

However, the animation is very good. It's colourful in a sumptuous way, meticulous in background detail, crisp, beautifully drawn and fluid in movement. Carl Stalling's music is outstanding. It is as always lushly orchestrated, full of lively energy and characterful in rhythm, not only adding to the action but also enhancing it.

'Gold Rush Daze' as said is mostly amusing and explores its subject in a lively and charming fashion. The momentum generally is there and the characters at least have personality even if not distinctive. Mel Blanc's voice work can't be faulted.

In conclusion, strike gold 'Gold Rush Daze' doesn't but it's far from a misfire. 6/10 Bethany Cox
