Trivia

Was conceived as an attempt to create a cartoon equivalent of Hal Roach's "Our Gang" shorts. Only a handful of cartoons were made with the new characters before the concept was dropped. Although there was an effort to make Beans the cat the newest Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies star, that role eventually went to Porky Pig. See more »

tip your hat to Porky Pig's 1st appearance
13 September 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Although "I Haven't Got a Hat" just looks like a cute cartoon, it really seems to be focusing on the various kinds of things that can happen during a school recital, namely stage fright and resentment. Probably most famous as Porky Pig's debut (he sings about Paul Revere's ride), the cartoon culminates when an owl tries to play the piano but a cat messes with the piano.

So, this is a formidable part of cartoon history. The crowd behind the Looney Tunes cartoons would further develop the cartoons in later years, but this is a good reference point. Worth seeing.

The lamb's fleece was as white as corn flakes. Ha!
