Oswald is Back! Oswald the Lucky Rabbit was one of Walt Disney's first animated characters and was the popular subject of over 25 shorts during 1927-1928. Since then he has disappeared from the medium and has only appeared in comics, graphics novels, and Disney's Epic Mickey video game series. Although Oswald had a brief cameo appearance in the short "Get a Horse!" he makes his triumphant starring return to animation for the first time in over 85 years in "Oswald the Lucky Rabbit Greeting Card". This new Oswald short was produced by Walt Disney of Japan and was released online over the 2013 holidays. The animation is crisp and clean and is very similar to the style used in the new Mickey Mouse television series.
