The Opry House Review
The Opry House is a 1929 Mickey Mouse cartoon. It is such a disappointing one.
Here Mickey basically performs in a theater from dancing to playing on a piano. It was a typical thing to do during this time – take a vaudeville, theatre play and make a short out of it where the character performs a few parts. I honestly never really liked that approach and here the execution isn’t too good to convince me that it was worth it.
The animation is actually very good and polished. Mickey got his gloves here for the first time which is worth a note. He is likable, but not particularly funny. The entire cartoon sounds and looks good and is overall harmless, but there is nothing in it that is memorable or particularly fun or funny and it needed more characters besides Mickey for sure.
The Opry House is well scored and animated, but lacking in terms of plot and characters.
