Toot, Whistle, Plunk, and Boom won a
1954 Oscar for Disney, winning a competition with UPA's cartoons at
the time. The cartoon was also among the 8 Disney cartoons listed in
the book, "The 50 Greatest Cartoons" (1994). A true classic.
This cartoon's look and animation is rather abstract. The look may
of inspired Pixar's only traditional animated short,
Your Friend the Rat.
Toot, Whistle, Plunk, and Boom is also
the first cartoon filmed in Cinemascope, which was widescreen. Following
Disney cartoons, such as Donald Duck and Humphrey the Bear cartoons
of the 1950s, "Lady and the Tramp", and even Goofy's most recent cartoon,
How to Hook Up Your
Home Theater, were also filmed in Cinemascope.
