It's recital day at the schoolhouse. First up: Porky, who recites The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere. A nervous kitten recites Mary Had a Little Lamb. The puppies Ham and Ex sing the title song. Oliver Owl plays the piano; Beans the cat puts a cat and dog inside, and they play a tune as well. Written by

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
