Storyline

A circus parade, to the title tune. Next, a series of sideshow acts: the wild boy, the rubber man, siamese twin pigs, a tattooed man, a hula-dancing hippo, an Indian snake (or goat) charmer. Into the ring, we have a hippo riding a horse (much to the horse's dismay), a high-wire act (again, to the title song), and finally a lion tamer. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

I Love a Parade is a pretty entertaining early Merrie Melodies cartoon
4 June 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

I Love a Parade is a Merrie Melodies cartoon from Hugh Harmon-Rudolf Ising Productions in association with Leon Schesinger and distributed by Warner Bros. The title tune is played throughout the short with various circus acts going on. See Siamese pig twins as one takes a cigar puff with the smoke coming out of the other's mouth! See an Indian guy who looks like Gandhi (before he became known) play his clarinet! See the lion tamer put his head in lion's mouth and then vice versa! And see a mouse who looks uncannily like Mickey! (Harmon and Ising once worked for Disney on a character who resembled the Famous Mouse except for one thing: the ears. That character was Oswald the Lucky Rabbit) The way the title song plays, both vocally and instrumentally, makes this a pretty entertaining animated short though hardly anything special. Worth a look, though, for any animation buffs especially the Warner Bros. kind. So long, folks!
