The Tortoise and the Hare (1935)

Rating: 3/10

A retelling of the Aesop fable as a tortoise races a hare. Who will win? Is there anyone that doesn’t know that answer to that?

Um, well, at least it was short. It’s nothing really that new considering it’s just a retelling of the fable. It doesn’t really add anything, outside of a kind of creepy bit where the hare is flirting with some “schoolgirl bunnies.” Again, at least it was short.

Um, can I even think of anything else to say? I guess the animation is fine, but it’s not much better than the Flowers and Trees short Walt made a couple years ago. I mean, I guess Best Animated Short is a category the Academy basically made to give to Disney every year, a tradition continued to this day, but this feels like Walt is really phoning it in this year.

SCORING:

+3: This is really nothing special, but I guess it warranted a sequel the following year
