Reviews and Comments

From Uncle Nunks :

'Oil's Well' Oswald Cartoon – Universal Good Oswald in this sound cartoon sees his gal stolen by villain Bear. Some ingenious animated sketches show how Oswald finally rescue the girl only to be pursued through the air by the Bear. Oswald travels on the back of a goofus bird, which the Bear finally shoots to earth. The villain makes our hero dig his own grave but Oswald strikes oil and they shake hands as partners in the newly found fortune. (Film Daily, 1 September, 1929, p.15)
