Walter Lantz and company finally and firmly walk Oswald like an Egyptian into the talkie era as he and a cast of camels, sphinxes and pyramids sing "Lucky Rabbit." Up until this point, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit had been sort of moving into what can be called 'synchronized' cartoons, in which the movements were matched to a musical soundtrack. With this one, however, Oswald sings, and you can see his mouth move in a decent approximation of cartoon reality.

The gags in this one are fairly weak for the era and if you want a better handling of the subject, you should look at Disney's HELL'S BELLS. But the music, singing and animation are quite good.
