The Museum is a pretty entertaining Toby the Pup cartoon
The Museum is a Toby the Pup cartoon from Charles Mintz that I just saw on Google Video. This is one of those many typical musical cartoons made in the wake of the success of Steamboat Wille, the first successful sound cartoon that made Mickey Mouse a star and Walt Disney famous. By comparison, Toby is one of the many Mickey-inspired impostors now forgotten likewise Mintz who's most famous for taking away Disney's Oswald the Lucky Rabbit character after Disney asked for more money allowing him to create The Most Famous Mouse of All. Anyway, this cartoon has Toby working as a janitor in a museum with (literally) a lion of a boss watching over him. As the cartoon goes on, the statues come to life dancing up a storm while the pup plays a harp made from a rake head which was originally a mop head. (Animators were so creative at this time!) Pretty entertaining and certainly worth a look for any animation fan.
