The Hays Office would have had a coronary with this one!

There are scenes in this short, although incredibly tame today, that probably shocked the various moral watchdogs of 1933 and clearly the soon to be created Hays Office would NOT have been happy with this short. I think it's simply wonderful. Bimbo and Koko are both in this one and this is a prime example of what can be done with animation when the animators realize that the intended audience was composed not only of children, but adults as well and that not all adults are blue-haired little old ladies or Bible salesmen from Topeka, Kansas. The Fleischers did some marvelous work and this is an excellent sample of that work. In print and available. Well worth watching. Most highly recommended.
