Animation Cel Drawing Mickey Mouse on Rock
The Brave Little Tailor was produced by Walt Disney and released in 1938 by RKO Radio Pictures. When Mickey Mouse boasts of killing seven with one blow, the townspeople believe he is referring to giants, not the seven flies that Mickey is talking about. The King then promises to give Mickey both vast riches and the hand of his daughter Princess Minnie if Mickey can kill the giant who is terrorizing the kingdom.
The King appoints Mickey Mouse “Royal High Killer of the Giant”. Mickey must now reluctantly live up to his title. The Brave Little Tailor was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film at the 11th Academy Awards in 1939, but lost to Disney’s own Ferdinand the Bull. In 1994 the film was chosen as the 26th greatest cartoon of all time by members of the animation field. The list was complied in the book The 50 Greatest Cartoons.
