Best Animation Movies of 1933
Three Little Pigs
The two pigs building houses of hay and sticks scoff at their brother, building the brick house. But when the wolf comes around and blows their houses down (after trickery like dressing as a foundling sheep fails), they run to their brother's house. And throughout, they sing the classic song, "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?".
The Mad Doctor
A dark and stormy night. Pluto is spirited away to the spooky mansion of an evil genius for a mad transplant scheme to put his head on the body of a chicken. Mickey gives chase, but find himself threatened severely by the house and its denizens.
Popeye the Sailor
Popeye and Bluto fight for the love of Olive Oyl in their debut short, featuring Betty Boop.
Trouble starts when the queen's magic mirror says Betty Boop is fairest.
Betty Boop's Penthouse
While Bimbo and Koko admire Betty, their experiment becomes a monster.
The Night Before Christmas
A narrator sings the opening stanzas of the classic poem while we see the house at rest. Santa lands on the roof, comes down the chimney, and opens his bag. The toys march out and decorate the tree, with the toy soldiers shooting balls from their cannon, a toy airplane stringing a garland like skywriting, and the toy firemen applying snow. A blimp delivers the star to the top. Meanwhile, Santa fills the stockings. His laughter awakens the children, who sneak out. The toys rush to their places, and Santa escapes up the chimney just in time.
The miners at Never Mine go to Betty Boop's Tavern (a jazz-jumpin' place) for lunch. Back in the mine, Bimbo delves into weird realms.
Five and Dime
Oswald is out on the street in a good mood, but a rainstorm drives him into a Five & Dime store, where he finds songs, jokes and a bride.
Building a Building
Mickey's a shovel operator and laborer at a construction site; Minnie is delivering box lunches; Pete is the foreman. Mickey pays more attention to Minnie than to his work, and keeps having accidents (mostly involving the blueprints Pete is holding). Pete steals Mickey's lunch, so Minnie offers him one on the house. While he's eating, Pete kidnaps Minnie; Mickey fights him, but the tide turns when Minnie dumps a load of hot rivets into Pete's pants...
Popeye skates over to Olive's house to give her a Christmas present: ice skates of her own. While he's teaching her, Bluto skates up and gets fresh; of course, Popeye fights him. When Olive rejects Bluto again, he sends her careening on an ice floe towards a waterfall.
