Build­ing A Building

Eighty years ago today saw the release of Mickey Mouse in Build­ing A Build­ing. This was not the same Mickey Mouse from Steam­boat Willie. Mickey had done a lot of grow­ing up– matur­ing– in five years, and passed a lot of his bad habits to Don­ald. And the artists at Dis­ney had shown a dras­tic improve­ment in their skills.

A send-up of the Harold Lloyd Safety Last sky­line antics. At the con­struc­tion site where he works, Mickey has his lunch stolen by his boss Pete. Min­nie helps Mickey out with a free box lunch from her wagon. Upset, Pete kid­naps her and the chase up the build­ing under con­struc­tion is on.

Mickey’s sec­ond Acad­emy Award nomination.

A remake of the Oswald the Lucky Rab­bit film Sky Scrap­pers (1928).

This film was David Hand’s first as a direc­tor at Disney.

Alter­nate Title: “Mickey the Steel Worker (Home Release).”
