Comments

From Jerry Edwards : Goofy appears to be of "grandpa" age in this first appearance. After he continually annoys the nearby audience with his loud, goofy laugh - two nearby persons clobber Goofy with a mallet so they can have some quiet. Other than Goofy, this cartoon is basically the "same old" song and dance routine.
From Ryan : Here it is! The very first appearance of Goofy. Goofy, however, does not have a major role in this short as he is just an audience member who crunches on his peanuts and laughs annoyingly, which terribly irks two goats behind him and they each hit him on the head with a mallet knocking him out. Goofy looked quite different than he does today. He had a beard on his chin and a puffy tail.
From Sam : A pretty typical outing for Mickey and friends, this short's claim to fame is that it is the premier performance of the character that would become Goofy, who steals the show from the beginning. I also found Mickey and Minnie's frantic finale very enjoyable. A pretty good short, but much more important as the jumping-off point for one of the world's most beloved cartoon characters.
From Gijs Grob : This cartoon joins two themes often explored in the black and white Mickey Mouse cartoons: that of Mickey and the gang giving a performance and that of numerous little kids causing havoc. The cartoon is nice, yet both themes are better executed elsewhere.

Here, the little kids are the small kittens we also saw in Mickey's Orphans. They would soon be replaced by little mice, first introduced in Mickey's Nightmare.

BBesides the first appearance of Goofy (as already mentioned by others) this cartoon also shows a clearly recognizable Horace Horsecollar, who has grown in personality beyond that of a stereotyped horse. In contrast, the cows are still quite anonymous, as there are four identical ones present in this picture. The cartoon also features the anonymous pig who is present in many other shorts, but who would never develop into a real character.


From Steven : I didn't really like this cartoon. None of the jokes are that funny and the kittens playing around with the instruments really annoyed me. I give it a one out of ten.
