He's Too Bizet to See the Conductor

A trombonist isn’t too careful where he’s playing in a sketchy rendition of Bizet’s “Carmen” in the 1929 Mickey Mouse short The Opry House.

This is one of 47 drawings in an elaborate but perfectly timed cycle. I’ve slowed it down to 75% speed of what it is in the cartoon.

Ub Iwerks supposedly drew this if we believe the re-created opening title card. My guess is Les Clark worked on this as well.
