Goopy, a dog of no particular personality, but a crackerjack piano player, plays several songs on the stage of a nightclub. We spend a fair amount of time watching the patrons and staff of the nightclub.

Storyline

At a nightclub, the crowd demands Goopy Geer, and the lanky dog doesn't disappoint them. He gives a zany performance on the piano, but the employees and the customers are just as wacky. A gorilla waiter dances while serving. Three identical cats display a peculiar way of eating. A chicken has a nauseating way of making chicken soup. The nightclub singer tells corny jokes. Even the hat racks come to life and dance. A horse imbibing a too-strong drink provides the show-stopper. Written by J. Spurlin

Goopy Geer is another entertaining Merrie Melodies cartoon from Harmon-Ising
4 June 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

Goopy Gear is the title character in this Merrie Melodies cartoon from Hugh Harmon-Rudolf Ising Productions in association with Leon Schlesinger and distributed by Warner Bros. He is a piano-playing dog who plays while the customers dance. There's the gorilla waiter who I just saw in Lady, Play Your Mandolin! Same goes for that alcohol-drinking horse who sees his reflection in the mirror and some hallucinations there as well! My favorite gag in here is when the waiter orders some soup and the chicken swims in it for a while before it is served! Loved the keys-playing sequences the best. Worth a look for anyone interested in early animated cartoons from Warner Bros.
