Production notes[edit]

  • Parade of the Award Nominees is the first movie in which Mickey appeared in color, and he wore green, instead of his iconic red, shorts.
  • Pluto is grey rather than yellow.
  • Joe Grant was hired to create the caricatures of the award nominees. It was his first work for Disney and he continued working in their story department for 70 years.
  • The winners who appear in the parade were Hayes, and Beery and March who were joint winners.
  • It was only shown at the Awards banquet and never intended for the general public; it was eventually released on both LaserDisc and DVD as part of Mickey Mouse cartoon compilation sets.
