Release Date : October 3, 1947
Running Time : 6:53
For those who were born after the advent of the VCR and the DVD, back when this short was made the only way audiences had to see any films was when the studios that controlled them released (or re-released) them to theaters. So for Mickey to return to screen after an almost 5 year absence was a really big deal. If you accept the notion that cartoon are for children there would be quite a few children now in the audience who had never seen the black and white Mickey or even the earlier color adventures. It would still be a few years before Disney would create his television classics "Disneyland" and the "Mickey Mouse Club". In fact 1947 is the year network television became affordable to the
American public. But the cartoons featured there were of a much earlier vintage.
Hail the returning hero - Mickey is back!
