Storyline

Things are hopping at a certain Mexican café. All the animals are singing. The tables are swaying to the music. The ape-waiter is dancing down the aisles as confetti and ribbons continually fall from the ceiling. And then Foxy walks in and the customers really go wild. He sings "A Gay Caballero" as he walks down the aisle. By the time he gets to his table, the show is ready to begin. The performer is a beautiful girl-fox singing "Lady, Play Your Mandolin." Foxy sings along, as his horse busts in and gets drunk. Written by J. Spurlin

But Don't Sing!
21 January 2003 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

The first credited Merrie Melody is a poor effort. The animation is repetitive, the gags poor -- one involves a character's dentures coming out on an armature and acting like a castanet -- and the songs -- "Lady, Play Your Mandolin" and "I Am A Gay Caballero" are sung in annoying cartoon voices.
