This is a small portion of a six-minute 1928 cartoon by Walt Disney titled "Sleigh Bells." The cartoon was found in the archive of the British Film Institute and has been restored. It will be shown next month in England, and undoubtedly be shown here sometime thereafter. Read more here.
As you can see, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, was easily morphed into the beloved Mickey Mouse. More early Mickey Mouse cartoons are found in Walt Disney's Vintage Mickey [DVD WAL]. Mickey, in a polished, later version, can be seen in The Three Musketeers [J DVD THR]
