Rubber Hose Disney

Rubber Hose Disney is Fun Disney.

There’s no real plot to The Jazz Fool. But it’s 1929. Music, co-ordinated sound effects and a topper gag-ending was all that cartoons needed back then.

It was also still the Rubber Hose Era. See how these cows whip their arms and legs around like spaghetti.

They wouldn’t be dancing like this in Fantasia.

Despite the title, there’s no jazz in the first half of the cartoon. We get a pipe organ playing “London Bridge is Falling Down” as the cows dance, accompanied by a cow bell which neither of them is wearing.
