Let’s go way back in time for today’s CotD… on this date in 1930, Disney released the Mickey Mouse cartoon Pioneer Days. Directed by Burt Gillett, it was one of the earliest “costume dramas” featuring Mickey and his gang.
Mickey and Minnie are out West and are attacked by Indians. Minnie is captured. Mickey comes looking for her, and is captured instead. Meanwhile, Minnie escapes and rescues Mickey. Later, they disguise themselves as the Cavalry and scare the entire tribe into the hills.
Whoo boy, does that sound like a load of Black and White fun and frivolity! Want to watch it? You are in luck– this baby is on BCDB today!
