Director: Wilfred Jackson
Release Date: March 27, 1931
Stars: Mickey Mouse
Luckily, a piano is washed ashore as well, so Mickey performs for the jungle animals inhabiting the island. Unfortunately, a little tiger disturbs him, and a great ape wants to play the piano, too, wrecking the instrument.
‘The castaway’ was a short made out of rest material, and it shows. Nevertheless, this short contains nice effect animation of waves washing ashore. It also reuses some animation of dancing sea lions from ‘Wild Waves‘ (1929).
Watch ‘The Castaway’ yourself and tell me what you think:
