Flip's Drug Store, Where The Celebrities Hang Out
20 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Flip is the owner of a brand new drug store, and you'd think it was the Academy Awards night. There is a spotlight, a red carpet and a list of celebrities that all show up for this momentous occasion.

We get the normal ones you'd see in a Flip The Frog cartoon, namely Laurel & Hardy, Jimmy Durante, Charlie Chaplin (or Eddie Cantor, I couldn't tell), The Marx Brothers (all four of them!), Mae West and a few I didn't recognize. Who knew that drug stores were that big a deal? Anyway, we see some clever ways Flip serves these famous people at the counter. The frog makes a total fool of himself over Mae.

Also inserted in this story is a flaming homosexual type. UB Iwerks often made fun of gays and had them look like the guy in here, so this cartoon will definite and justifiably offend members of that group. The gay guy drinks a strange potion and suddenly turns into a "Mr. Hyde" and demolishes the place before being squirted a "pansy spray" and returning to normal.

There weren't many laughs in here but it was a fast-moving, entertaining cartoon and it's always fun to see these old movie stars parodied. The Marx Brothers all trying to drink - with four straws - a soda, was one example of the topical humor.
