These Animals Sure Can Play
26 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This Merrie Melodies short proves nothing except that animators in the 1930s were on drugs.

It's inconceivable to me that children who watched these cartoons wouldn't be absolutely terrified. In this one, we're witness to a sort of vaudeville show with an all-animal cast, including a myopic turtle and a pig very proud of his ability to play the flute. There's a troupe of dancing "girls" who sing about "shaking your powder puff," and a dog (or wolf, or fox or something) keeps getting thrown out by the management.

This is an interesting curio, but it's totally whacked out. If you want to see it for yourself, you can find it as a special feature on the DVD release of the 1934 Astaire/Rogers film, "The Gay Divorcée."
