THE KARNIVAL KID (Theatrical Release USA 1929)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

The Karnival Kid—terrific period piece that shows how well cartoons could tell their story in just a few minutes—shows the promise of the Disney team and gives a hint at where they were going to go. This short film takes little time for viewing and is well worth the effort.

Thank you to Director Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks for directing effort. Thank you to Producers Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Walt Disney and Carl W. Stalling.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Great work for all involved. This is one of Mickey Mouse’s best initial films and details the culture of the late 1920s. Very good work by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks.
