early Merrie Melodie, more singing toys
17 October 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The first few Merrie Melodies were not particularly original or inventive - the best years were yet to come - but this Harman/Ising production based around the Dubin/Warren tune from 'Gold Diggers of 1933' is OK.

The basic premise surrounds a group of toys who start to walk, talk, sing and play instruments when the shop owner has gone to bed. In a blatant plug for the song (which Warners owned), toys, hats, and the like join together in chorus.

The trouble is there were quite a few cartoons with the same plot, all using a song as a centre, and this is nothing new. As a historical document though, it has its interest.
