Foxy is a streetcar driver who sings "Smile, Darn Ya, Smile!" as he drives along the tracks. Nearly everyone he encounters sings along: the hippo who can't fit into the car, the girl-fox who can, and the hobos on the side of the tracks. Even the characters on the billboards come to life and sing. Foxy's job is not without troubles. His first difficulty is the cow who blocks his way and refuses to move. Later, he's in more serious trouble when he loses control of the car, sending him and the girl-fox careening down the tracks at top speed. Written by
Did You Know?
In the scene where Foxy was trying to push a hippo into the streetcar, which is clearly too small for her, she starts mumbling in gibberish. It's actually a backwards track and when played in reverse, she's clearly saying "Susie heard one of those Atlantic bells! Whataya think?" See more
The girl-fox on the streetcar sits down, but the animators forgot to draw the bench. (In the next shot, she sits down again, but this time the bench is there.) See more
Smile, darn ya, smile! / Smile, darn ya, smile! / Come on and smile, darn ya, smile!
