I think a standing ovation is in order!

What can I say, brilliant! It is funny, original and fast paced. Adapted from the Aesop fable, it deals with overconfidence and perseverance in the way only Disney can do, and at no time does it preach. The Technicolour animation is very very good, and the music was just wonderful. The little rabbits were adorable, and both the tortoise and the hare(who I admit is a bit of a jerk) are great with great personalities that positively shine through here. There is an irreverent script, and although the pace is very fast, it is a hugely enjoyable silly symphony, that keeps true to the original fable, and in the meantime putting its own irreverent spin on it. Time to give it the standing ovation it deserves. 10/10 Bethany Cox

While lacking the edge of other cartoons, the animation is tops.

If you are looking for edgy humor, the 1930s are NOT the era to search. Very often, the cartoons of the era featured lots of singing and nice, cute characters. The more irreverent style of Tex Avery with MGM and the Looney Tunes bunch (Bugs, Daffy and the gang) were still to be developed in the 1940s. So, although THE TORTOISE AND THE HARE definitely lacks a comedic edge and is a bit on the cutesy-cutesy side, it's head and shoulders better than the typical product of the age. Why was is Oscar-worthy? Well, it's because the animation quality was simply amazing. The colors were very, very vibrant, the backgrounds were amazing and the character animation was smooth. During the 30s, it's hard to find cartoons that look better than this. My only regret is that the more mainstream cartoons like Mickey Mouse were not seriously considered. Perhaps they lacked the snob appeal, but GULLIVER MICKEY or TWO-GUN MICKEY would have been better choices--having both the great animation and a more enjoyable and less predictable story.

Lessons in the pitfalls in overconfidence and the value of perseverance, Disney style

While Disney has all too often taken a classic and "cuted" it into inanity, this actually is a very good cartoon that still manages to retain the underlying message (while still being almost too cute for it's own good). Toby Tortoise is every kid who had to fade into the background to avoid being stuffed into a locker and manages to win out as much through being too lightly regarded as through his own determination. This won Disney it's third straight Oscar for Animated Short, a category they maintained a death-grip on until the early 1940's, when another mouse and his cohort started winning. Recommended.
