The Band Concert

A funny thing I finally figured out about Disney cartoons: they're not funny. Not in the way an old Chuck Jones WB cartoon is funny.

But the early Disneys like this one were just craziness for fun. I read that this was "the first color animated short in the Mickey Mouse series" (although not the first appearance of the main characters).

And this early version of Donald has its charm. The longer beak, leaner body. More Daffy-ish. Didja notice Donald is the only one who speaks? If you can call that speaking.

Trivia Supreme: Donald is playing "Turkey in the Straw," the song Mickey performed in Steamboat Willie.
