Not When it's good animation
21 January 2003 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Early Merrie Melodie is primarily of interest for its use of Gus Arnheim's Band to perform the title song. The gags and animation are pretty awful, looking like third=rate Disney animation. You'd be better off finding a good copy of the original Brunswick record.
