Poorly animated, Plot less, and Unfunny
24 March 2010 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

This early Warner Brothers Cartoon decides that the perfect theme for the song "Young and Healthy" is to have a rotund king (Louis XVI, apparently) grumble about, slap around his Jimmy Durante Jack-in-the-Box, and scowl at his homely queen.

The short looks like it might become interesting when the King brightens up upon seeing a group of poor children playing, and joins them, but even them nothing much comes of it. The King leads them into the palace, but never makes it up the stairs. (There's a LOT of stair climbing and falling in this cartoon.) Warner Brothers animation had not yet reached its era of greatness, but this was a poor effort by even their early standards.
