The Birthday Party Review
The Birthday Party is a 1931 Mickey Mouse cartoon. It is such a cute entry.
This is one of those Mickey Mouse shorts which rely heavily on music owing to its early sound age period and once again it is overwhelming in dance and song numbers. That is why that second half was inferior as it was just too much. It was well executed and I liked the score quite a bit, but it was repetitive and overlong.
However, the first half is much better and much more endearing. I loved the beginning of the party and the arrival of Mickey. The highlight has to be that dialogue between Mickey and Minnie as it was not only very funny, but also extremely cute and endearing. I just bought them as a couple in this moment alone. Loved it.
The Birthday Party definitely is overwhelming in music, but incredibly cute in Mickey and Minnie’s interactions.
