"The Simple Things" (1953)
I'm trying to keep this blog as positive as possible and highlight the good things that came out of the Disney studios. But since last time it was all about the best, I thought I might as well get this out of my system and showcase what was probably one of the worst.
And it makes it doubly tragic that this was Mickey's last short; Disney couldn't even let him go out with a bang. What the thinking behind it was,I can't even begin to guess. It certainly wasn't a lack of imagination on the artists part. This was the same year that saw the secellent "Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom" and the 3-D experiment "Working for Peanuts."
But by this time Mickey has become too bland to support a short on his own. It's sad, really.
