A piece of Vaudeville history
7 October 2010 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This delightful film from the Fleischer studio features Al Shean of the famed Vaudeville team of Gallagher and Shean singing their signature song, "Mr. Gallagher and Mr. Shean." Gallagher died in 1929 so Shean goes solo in this film, despite the current incorrect listing here on the IMDb that has one Jack Kenny portraying Gallagher. Shean and Shean alone appears in the live action section and he sings both parts of the song.

In the animated section two voices are singing but they are uncredited. Whether one of those voices belongs to Jack Kenny is undetermined. Neither voice in the animated section sounds like Al Shean.

I own a 16mm print of this film in my collection and Al Shean is absolutely the only live action character in it. I have tried to correct this Jack Kenny credit as he simply does not appear in this film, but the IMDb ignores my correction.
