#1 Red Riding Hood (Rotkäppchen) First minute is repetitive; entertainment emerges. Modern spin.
#2: The Four Musicians of Bremen (Die Bremerstadt Musikanten)
1spudme (YouTube uploader) writes: "This was the second earliest animated short he ever made (the first
being Little Red Riding Hood). In this Laugh-O-Gram, we see four animals
running from bricks being thrown after them by humans. The last of
them, a cat, keeps appearing and disappearing at various points in this
sequence. They stop at a river where three of them play music while the
cat tries to catch a fish that walks out of the river and jumps away
each time the cat tries to hit him with a board. I'll stop there and say
that was pretty amusing as was a later sequence where some human men
shoot cannon balls at the house the four animals are staying with the
cat pulling a Felix and using his tail to hit one of those balls from
the roof and then riding on another of them (or was it the same one? I
can't remember). Pretty primitive but worth a look for anyone curious
about the legendary Disney's earliest works."
