Disney's Steamboat Willie
I have always wanted to watch this short but I always forgot.
Basically steamboat willie was the first Disney cartoon that had synchronized sound. The plot is basically Micky wanting to have fun, but Pete just wants to get the job done. Which is collecting cargo and deporting them somewhere.
While watching this I notice that the characters are quite rubbery and very surreal. One of the known surreal things is when a goat is used as a phonograph when it ate only a music sheet and a small fiddle.
What's funny about this cartoon is that Mickey is one big jerk to animals. While listening to music he used the animals around him and used them as instruments.
I could embedded this so here is a link
