Original Release Poster
Though 'officially' recognized as the first color Mickey Mouse cartoon, it is actually Mickey's second color appearance on the screen. His first actual color cartoon was the 1932 Parade Of The Award Nominees done for the 1932 Academy Awards dinner.
Inspired by the 1931 Max Fleischer TALKARTOON 'Tree Saps' This short features roughly the same plot, and the same musical gag of the William Tell Suite being played as a raging tornado comes along.
Reportedly, famed conductor Arturo Toscanini loved to see this cartoon over again and again.
