Oswald the Rabbit dusts and oils his trolley for another day of work. He chases off the local bunnies, who are playing on it. A big, fat piglet jumps on a bit later; Oswald's method of pig-removal is to punch the porker in the face. Oswald drives up to the water tower, which is full of passengers, not water. He dumps them into his trolley, and they're off. The rabbit's first problem of the day is getting past a haughty cow who refuses to budge from the tracks. A steep hill causes him another headache, while a butt-happy goat gives him trouble at the other end. But the real trouble comes when he loses control of the car as it careens down a hillside.Written by
Trolley Troubles is an interesting early Walt Disney Oswald cartoon
Just watched this early pre-Mickey Mouse Walt Disney cartoon on YouTube. It starred Oswald the Lucky Rabbit who looks like Mickey with rabbit ears. Trolley Troubles has many amazing and funny silent cartoon gags involving the trolley, the tracks, a cow, a goat, and a crowd of passengers (all resembling Oswald). And there's a Felix-the-Cat-like gag involving the rabbit's tail. Quite amusing and well recommended for anyone interested in anything involving Walt Disney, silent cartoons, and movie history in general. Oswald's resemblance to Mickey is probably because the person who helped create both characters was one Ub Iwerks. I can hardly wait for the upcoming DVD collection of Disney Oswald shorts later this year as well as a Walter Lantz series that has some later Oswalds.
