ON ICE - The fish suddenly
whirling on the Goof, grabbing his club and socking him with it, was
an unexpected surprise and pepped up the story at this point.
When the big worm gallops away with Mickey a la Charlie Chaplin, it
caused a big laugh and pepped up the story. (Brightman)
14.When gags and actions become
funnier by repetition.
BAND CONCERT - repetition
of Duck producing flutes, and Mickey continually putting back his sleeves.
THREE LITTLE PIGS -
two pigs hiding under the bed with their straightening
MOVING DAY - Sheriff's
cigar popping out.
- Donald's recitation.
15. Gag-fertile situations.
An excellent gag-fertile situation was portrayed in
ORPHAN'S PICNIC when Donald
was setting the table and layout out the food. The more food he laid
out, the faster it disappeared.
Another gag which became funnier and funnier was Pluto's dogged determination
with the magician's hat in
MICKEY'S GRAND OPERA.
MICKEY'S REVIEW was a
series of disconnected gags thrown together which didn't help the situation.
BRIGADE had the beginnings of a good situation, but somehow fell
down in the way its gags were linked. Mickey was taken on a tangent
when he shot into the sky on a ladder and his accidentally falling down
the chimney and into contact with the Duck and Goof was weak. (Algar)
16. Gag with a topper
contains an excellent cycle with topper in the sequence showing the
Duck trying frantically to escape from the mountain goat. He wildly
scampers up an icy slope in his efforts to get away, each time slipping
back to be butted again by the goat, who is even more damaged in the
mix-up that he. (Algar)
