The Karnival Kid (1929)

The Karnival Kid ReviewThe Karnival Kid Review

The Karnival Kid is a 1929 Mickey Mouse cartoon. It is such an odd, crazy flick.

This film contains two segments basically. One has Mickey dealing with the hot dogs and in the other one he serenades Minnie. I preferred the first half much more than the second segment because it is funnier and much more interesting. The second segment is fine, but it features those crazy singing voices from those cats and the musical approach here was obviously flawed as it was the first one. The ending itself is not all that memorable as well.

But the first segment is absolutely hilarious in its originality and brutality. The hot dogs are basically portrayed as living creatures and they bite and run like dogs. The scene where Mickey spanks one of them was truly hilarious in its ridiculousness and of course authenticity. The film is famous for being the first entry in the series where Mickey Mouse speaks actual lines and I disliked that as Walt himself did not provide the voice and this one was too harsh.

The Karnival Kid has a weaker second segment, but the first one is hilarious with the hot dog scenes.

My Rating – 3.9
