If Anthing Can Happen Then Nothing Is Surprising
30 December 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

And therefore nothing is really funny. That's my take on it and you may certainly disagree, but this is the principal reason why Harman-Ising Merrie Melodies are not particularly funny -- nor are the versions of popular songs offered here particularly good, given the squeaky-voiced vocal artists offered for your entertainment here.

A great deal of the fun in the Termite Terrace era of animation is not simply that anything can happen, but that you, the audience, knew what was going to happen to poor Daffy Duck when he tried to swindle Bugs. Even the Cartoon Laws of Physics -- such as the best known one, about gravity: gravity will not work upon an object until the object recognizes it is going to fall -- make a rough psychological sense, once you're in on the gag.

Here, alas, the best jokes are poor celebrity caricatures: Rudy Vallee shows up, although he looks more like Harpo Marx to my eyes.
