While some people were incredibly excited to see the latest animated film to hit theatres, 'Frozen,' others were anticipating the animated short that opened it, the Disney 'Get a Horse' clip. Paying homage to the studio's original style of animation, it cleverly blends the old with the new in a way that brings the debate of which is better to the big screen. By doing so, the Disney 'Get a Horse' short shows that each style has its merits on its own.

Directed by Lauren MacMullan, the Disney 'Get a Horse' short begins completely in the old style with Mickey Mouse on a road adventure with his classic friends. But an impatient Peg-Leg Pete and his new-fangled automobile begins to make some trouble and in their battle for the road, they begin to bounce between colors and dimensions seamlessly.
