The first of two animated shorts that took radio characters Amos 'n' Andy and tried to aim their humor at kids. In this film Andy is told that he must get into the ring with a wrestling champion so it's up to Amos and the trainer to get him into shape. That's pretty much the only plot to this film, which at just 10-minutes feels as if it runs longer than GONE WITH THE WIND. I really can't remember another animated short from this era that felt so long. There are all sorts of problems with this film but we can start with the actual animation, which just looks extremely cheap and overall it just has a poor quality to it. There really wasn't anything impressive with the drawings and it really did seem that someone was just trying to save money with its cheapness. Another major problem is the fact that the humor here is just downright bad. There wasn't a single second where I actually laughed at anything and this includes the various bits of Andy trying to train and even the wrestling match offers up no laughs. This here will appeal to history buffs who want to see the original Amos 'n' Andy "gang" but there's not much here for any viewer.
