"Honeymoon Hotel" (1934) cartoon available free as an "add on" with "Footlight Parade" (1933) VHS and also DVD videos.
This longer than average, very well done color 1934 cartoon is now (2012) available with both VHS and DVD editions of "Footlight Parade" (1933), a famous Warner Brothers musical which contains the "Honeymoon Hotel" song sung by Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler.
"Honeymoon Hotel" is a big production number in "Footlight Parade" (1933), one of three presented at the end of the movie. It is very witty, and very adult in ways later not permitted when the MPAA "Code" went into effect censoring major studio movies for most of the 1930's through the 1960's.
The "bugtown" cartoon version is a spoof with bugs singing the song, and is much longer (and in ways better) than the song sung by live people in "Footlight Parade" (1933). Used VHS copies of "Footlight Parade" (1933) can be purchased cheap from Amazon.Com and worth getting. Both "Footlight Parade" (1933) and the "Honeymoon Hotel" (1934) cartoon are true classics.
