Three Blind Mouseketeers (1936)

Three Blind Mouseketeers ReviewThree Blind Mouseketeers Review

Three Blind Mouseketeers is a 1936 Disney short film in the Silly Symphony series. It is such a fun and well crafted, if very derivative work.

Yes, the only flaw here is its derivative nature. Three Blind Mouseketeers is basically a rip-off of ‘The Three Little Pigs’. Rip-off is a harsh word as the stories aren’t that similar, but some of the action is way too similar to the aforementioned film and some animation shots are even directly taken from it.

But other than that, this is a superb film that I liked a lot. It is one of my childhood favorites and I like it now too because it is so entertaining and incredibly well edited and crafted with not a single moment being wasted. The character design is great, the animation is polished, the music is good and the action is mostly great. I loved the characters quite a bit. I loved that the cat villain was voiced by Billy Bletcher and I really enjoyed the three mice who are infectiously energetic and they work wonderfully as a team.

Three Blind Mouseketeers is admittedly derivative, but still incredibly fun, so well crafted and it is one of the most entertaining Silly Symphonies of the time.

My Rating – 4.2
