A Gag-A-Second With All Objects Coming To Life
11 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is another of those cartoons that had so many sight gags you'd lose count trying to list them all. It was great fun. Many of those gags, as they tend to be in cartoons, particularly in the mid '30s, involved inanimate objects coming to life.

Here, in this pirate story, we see a ship suddenly sprouting legs and walking! The ship's skull-and-crossbones comes to life with the skull using the crossbones as a lookout glass; the cannons come to life and burp as they fire out ammunition, etc., etc.

Also included in this wild action cartoon are scenes involving bowling and baseball, bare-breasted women (I was surprised it got past the Code), and a parrot that is an unlikely hero.

This is a frenetic seven minutes and highly recommended for escapist, fun fare. I saw it on one of those "Cartoons That Time Forgot" DVDs, featuring the work of UB Iwerks.
