Storyline

Prolog: various animals enjoy winter sports. Beans sees a notice of a ski race, and decides to enter. But so does a bad guy (who looks more than a little like Disney's Pete). The bad guy sabotages the other contestants in various ways, takes short cuts, etc. But Beans manages to tie up the bad guy in his own trip line. A duck riding a dachshund knocks the bad guy out for a while; he and Beans trade places a few more times before Beans wins the race, just barely. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

ice skater's daughter
29 July 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

One of the early Looney Tunes cartoons - at this time, Porky Pig was their major star and Mel Blanc wasn't yet providing the voices - features a skiing race in which a bully does everything possible to sabotage everyone else's chances. But he didn't figure on Beans.

I noticed that the song played at the beginning ("She Was an Ice Skater's Daughter") had the same tune as the theme song in their later cartoon "She Was an Acrobat's Daughter". I wonder whether or not the tune influenced that song "Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini".

Oh well. Whatever the case, this is an OK cartoon. Warner Bros. cartoons hadn't yet taken the completely zany path that characterized them throughout the '40s and '50s (I think that they set about that path once the animators created Daffy Duck). Worth seeing, if only once.
