Nice Version of Classic Irving Berlin Song
2 July 2006 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

A forgotten singing Duo called The Wandering Minstrels (Les Reis and Artie Dunn) sing this classic Irving Berlin Song while this cartoon depicts an army about to wake up for the day. There are several gags depicting beds moving by themselves, alarm clocks ringing in tune, the ting on the bell trying to sleep while he's ringing, and one person marching ahead while his twin does the same behind and vice versa. Betty Boop appears as a nurse who sings to us to follow the bouncing ball. As with most Max Fleisher cartunes, the bouncing ball is the tip of an electric stick that glows from behind a screen in order to point the words we are supposed to sing to. Near the end, the ball is replaced by a cartoon character (or more) walking on the words. The unique Fleisher humor shines through in these early Screen Song shorts.
