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

Wacko Merry Melody
26 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This bizarre cartoon short is more disturbing than anything. The animation is creepy, and the content is rather adult for the art form. A bunch of unidentifiable animals (I know I saw a gorilla, and maybe some foxes?) drink it up until they're soused, and a grand finale consists of a horse exploding while a bunch of rowdy saloon customers dance around it maniacally. The songs are annoying, a quality not helped by the fact that they stick to your head like glue (I caught myself humming one of them in the shower). If I had seen this come on the screen as a little kid, I probably would have wanted to crawl under my seat and hide.

This is on the DVD release of "Little Caesar," if you're interested in seeing it for yourself.
