Storyline

Three workers on a riverboat sing the title tune, accompanying themselves on a banjo, a jew's harp and bones. Meanwhile, Uncle Tom drives Fluffy the pig on a donkey cart to the dock, where she can board the riverboat. Her beau Piggy is the captain. Piggy's adventures include riding the tail of an alligator, rescuing Fluffy from a moustache-twirling villain and saving Uncle Tom from drowning. Uncle Tom had had his own adventure when he inadvertently wound up in a graveyard. The skeletons had risen from their graves promising to take him to Hallelujah Land. Written by J. Spurlin

Trivia

One of the "Censored 11" banned from T.V. syndication by United Artists in 1968 (then the owners of the Looney Tunes film library) for alleged racism. Ted Turner continued the ban when he was hired and stated that these films will not be re-issued and will not be put on Home Video. These cartoons will probably never air on television again, and only non-Warner Bros. licensed public domain video tapes will probably ever have these cartoons on them. See more »

Good cartoon, but don't expect to see it without doing some serious searching.

This short is one of eleven that likely won't be seen on television any time soon, if ever again. An innocuous little thing, cute in spots and with some good animation, it also has elements that make it unpalatable to some in the present day culture that has developed a mindset that no one should ever get their feelings hurt. Which, in the case of this short, is really unfortunae, because there is a scene with dancing skeletons which, though a bit derivative, is almost as enjoyable as the short it's emulated, The Skeleton Dance. An engaging cartoon and well worth the time and effort to locate. Most highly recomended.
