The Opry House (1929)

by Nicholas Sammond

Mickey Mouse cleans the front of the Opry House for a show that night, dancing with the broom as practice. He then deflates a large man so he can go in to the show. The band plays a few pieces, with various gags throughout. Mickey then performs three acts: snake-charming, an impression of a Hasidic Jew, and a piano solo. The cartoon brings together a collection of impressions, stereotypical representations and musical numbers (many being popular American tunes) used within the vaudeville and blackface/minstrel shows and repurposed within early animated shorts as well as later animations.
