A Lively Junkyard.
29 May 2009 | by (Hialeah, Florida) – See all my reviews

Firstly, I'm sorry the last commentator here couldn't/didn't feel this Warners/Merrie Melodies short and has no appreciation for a real good thing when it's seen. Secondly, concerning the title song that's performed here, it's better and I rather listen to that than the crunk/snap/auto-tune based rap/hip-hop mess that had hit the commercial/mainstream music scene this decade. Also, I like the early, black and white cartoons as much as the colored ones. This is one of my favorite b&w animated featurettes. I find the title tune to be the stuck-in-your-head-in-a-good-way kind of catchy. The last reviewer is probably into the sub-genres of music I just stated, that might be why that reviewer couldn't get into this. If that case is true, then I'm sorry, something must be wrong with him not to be grabbed by this.

After being carried in a wagon (by the way, not truck), pulled by a drowsy junkman and his drowsy horse, the bumps the hit along the way causes the wagon to jerk and all the things to fall into a dump. One of them is a male mannequin, who comes to life after a clock bonks him on the head. He finds an old piano and after substituting the missing strings with a row of bedsprings, he begins playing the title song. Soon, all the other junkyard denizens join in the act. I find this to be entertaining, don't take the second reviewer's word, see for yourselves. If this doesn't put smiles on your faces and get y'all in a good mood, then I'm not sure what else will.
