The film itself consists of 9 popular cartoons from the 1930s and 40s that have been condensed and reworked with new music, sound effects, and modern technology to make them more accessible to a contemporary audience.
The first cartoon in the collection is "Clock Cleaners" and stars the iconic trio of Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy. The three friends get a job cleaning a clock tower, but the job proves to be more trouble than they anticipated. The fast-paced physical humor is sure to leave viewers of all ages in stitches.
The second film in the collection is "Bee At The Beach." Starring Donald Duck again, he spends the day at the beach trying to relax, but with a pesky bee buzzing around him, relaxation is hard to come by. This short is a perfect example of Donald's fiery personality and willingness to fight anything and everything that gets in his way.
The third short is "Lonesome Ghosts," featuring Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy as ghost hunters. When they receive a house call from some ghostly customers, they soon realize that they might be in over their heads. With plenty of slapstick humor and clever gags, this short is sure to please.
Next up is "Hawaiian Holiday," which finds Mickey and his friends on a tropical island getaway. They participate in a variety of island activities, from hula dancing to surfing, but not everything goes according to plan. This short was highly praised for its use of color and lively animation and is a fan favorite.
The fifth short in the collection is "The Whalers" featuring Goofy. Goofy takes on the role of a whaler in this adventure on the high seas. However, his lack of experience and knowledge of the job leads to plenty of comedic mishaps. The colorful animation and inventive humor make this short one of the most memorable in the collection.
The sixth short is "Winter Storage" starring Donald Duck. In this short, Donald and Chip & Dale compete for a warm spot to spend the winter. The two competing characters bring an extra level of tension and chaos to the story, resulting in several laugh-out-loud moments.
The seventh short is "How To Play Baseball," featuring Goofy. Goofy demonstrates the proper techniques of playing baseball, but his unique take on the sport leads to some hilarious moments. This cartoon perfectly illustrates Goofy's signature "aw-shucks" attitude and ends with a surprising twist.
The eighth short is "The Art Of Skiing," starring Goofy. Goofy takes up skiing and quickly discovers that it's not quite as easy as it looks. Once again, his unique brand of physical comedy is on full display in this hilarious cartoon.
Finally, the collection concludes with "Pioneer Days," featuring Mickey Mouse and his pals. In this short, they play pioneers settling in the Wild West. There's a lot of potential for hijinks when Mickey and his pals try to wrangle cattle, and the result is an uproarious slice of comedy.
Overall, Have A Laugh: Volume 1 is a successful modernization of classic Disney shorts.
