When the Midnight Choo-Choo Leaves for Alabam' is interesting early sound Song Cartune
6 January 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

The version of this Max Fleischer Song Cartune I saw on Google Video ended when the song did so there was no final gag animation that I'm used to seeing on others made during the '30s. The only animation I saw here was when the conductor said, "All aboard!" with a long line of passengers quickly filing in. Then one late passenger opens the conductor like a door before the song starts. I'm guessing the recording used during this pre-Jazz Singer short was the actual recording played in some theatres that were getting wired for sound for this and other experimental sound Song Cartunes Fleischer was making at the time. The synchronization with the singer and the bouncing ball is not perfect but I guess since this was indeed an experimental undertaking that can be excused. Certainly worth seeing once for any Fleischer completists out there.
