The Band Concert was the first ever proper Mickey Mouse cartoon in colour and it is my favourite Mickey cartoon. Mickey here is a supporting player in his own cartoon, upstaged by his co-star Donald Duck several times during the short film. This was just Donald’s third or fourth cartoon appearance and he truly shines and shows off his comic potential. The cartoon has wonderful timing and the music is great too. Some of the animation is very beautiful too.
