Disney - "A Cowboy Needs A Horse"


I'm posting this one mostly just for the backgrounds, it's worth the effort just for the first two shots of the apartment. As for the cartoon, meh. Not much going on in this one. The indian chief's design is pretty cool, along with the train conductor, but the kids are rather generic.

Have your kids been bugging you to play this one constantly? I know it's a favorite of tykes.

Sadly no, this one's all me. They're to hip for this stuff. They prefer Popeye and Bluto beating the shit out of each other. They're like their old man, they like cartoons with moronic "which way did he go, which way did he go" characters. It brings a tear to my eye.

I love this short, it's one of my favorites, and was when I was a kid too. I have a tendency to like animated shorts that are driven by a good song.

Kevin, since you like the backgrounds so much, what do you know about Ralph Hulett and Al Dempster? I've never heard of either but I'm not a Disney fan.

And what is it with cartoon Indian chiefs wearing top hats? Where does that come from?

I totally remember this from when I was a kid. I was one of those tykes asking to see it over and over again. Thanks for the nostalgia trip!

Unfortunately, though, it was on one of those Disney sing along video cassettes and it just had the song at the beginning and end with all the stuff in the middle cut out (which I know I would have loved) and I can see why. That bandit towards the end was about to stab that little girl!

But it has a nice use of cartoon logic with the boy becoming part of the rail for the train. It makes perfect sense.
