The Old Woman Who Lived in the Shoe-Fleischer style!
6 January 2004 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

Like Disney, the Fleischers took fairy tales and adapted them for cartoons. But the Fleischers added their own twists to these cartoons. They weren't Disney, never could be and their weakest work is when they tried to out-mouse the Mouse. The highlight here is a great rendition of the song, "Mama Don't 'Low" as essayed by Smiley Burnette, a character actor most associated with westerns, principally as Gene Autrey's sidekick. His voice is almost unmistakeable and the energy of the cartoon, which starts slowly, picks up considerably once he starts singing. Visually nice with a few other moments, notably the ending. This short can be found on the Somewhere In Dreamland DVD compilation in a separate section as one of four shorts considered too poor in condition to fully restore. While not as beautiful as the restored shorts, it is most certainly watchable. Well worth seeing. Recommended.
