Prod. UM3 - The Whoopie Party

One of my favorite fun Mickey shorts is the abundantly musical The Whoopee Party, released 09/17/32. Directed by Wilfred "Jaxon" Jackson, it was animated by Hardie Gramatky, Eddie Donnelly, Les Clark, Dave Hand, Johnny Cannon, Norm "Fergy" Ferguson, "Frenchy" de Trémaudan, Ben Sharpsteen (and unnamed crew of trainees), Tom Palmer, Jack King and Dick Lundy.

IMDb mentions Maude Nugent as composer of "Sweet Rosie O'Grady" as part of the score in this upbeat short, which can be found on the 2002 Treasures DVD set Mickey Mouse in Black and White...
Happy Fourth of July to all who celebrate it!

This was one of the first 16mm shorts in my collection. For years, I used to have weekly parties showing new films I'd collected. The Whoopee Party was probably the most requested film at those gatherings. Consequently, I must have seen this easily 100 times. It still holds up, an I'm sure I could watch another 100 times.
