The British Film Institute has discovered a long lost Walt Disney film starring Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Disney's first cartoon character. No part of Sleigh Bells had been seen since it made its original release in 1928.
The six-minute animation was found by a researcher at the BFI National Archive in Berkhamsted. He recognized the name of the film as one thought lost. It had been titled and dated 1931, but had no references to Disney or Oswald the Lucky Rabbit so it was catalogued and socked away in storage.
