Get a Horse is a 2013 animated short film, produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and directed by Lauren MacMullan. It is a tribute to the Mickey Mouse cartoons from the 1930s and 1940s, particularly the 1928 cartoon Steamboat Willie, which introduced Mickey Mouse to the world. The film stars Mickey Mouse, voiced by Walt Disney using archival recordings, and his friends Minnie Mouse, voiced by Marcellite Garner, and Horace Horsecollar, voiced by Micky Dolenz. It also features the voice talents of Russi Taylor as Daisy Duck and Clarabelle Cow.

The film begins with Mickey Mouse and his friends getting ready for a horse-drawn wagon ride, but their plans are interrupted by the mischievous antics of Peg-Leg Pete, who tries to steal the wagon and kidnap Minnie. What follows is a wild and wacky chase through the countryside, as Mickey and his friends try to rescue Minnie and outsmart Pete.

What makes Get a Horse unique is its blend of old and new animation techniques. The film starts out looking like a black and white cartoon from the 1920s, complete with scratchy film and a jazzy soundtrack. But as the action heats up, the film bursts into color and 3D, with Mickey and his friends leaping off the screen and into the theater.

This mixture of old and new is a tribute to the history of animation and to the enduring appeal of the classic cartoon characters. It also shows how far animation has come since the days of the silent era, and how it continues to evolve and innovate.

The animation in Get a Horse is stunning, with every detail of Mickey and his friends' world brought to life in vibrant color and meticulous detail. The characters move with fluidity and grace, their expressions and gestures conveying everything from joy and excitement to fear and anger.

The use of 3D adds an extra dimension to the action, making the chase scenes and sight gags even more thrilling and immersive. The film also features innovative camera angles and perspectives, which give the audience a new and exciting way of looking at the characters and the world they inhabit.

The music in Get a Horse is also a joy, with catchy tunes and jazzy riffs that transport the audience back to the golden age of animation. The sound effects are also cleverly integrated into the action, adding humor and excitement to every moment.

Overall, Get a Horse is a delightful tribute to the classic cartoon characters of the past and a showcase of the state-of-the-art animation techniques of the present. It is a must-see for anyone who loves animation, Mickey Mouse, or just good old-fashioned fun.
