Storyline

Baseball. The Chicago Giants, led by rooster pitcher Dizzy Dan, are playing the Hicksville team. Dan arrives in Hicksville and sings the title song while eyeing local pitcher Claude's girl. The game. Showboat Dan throws two strikes so hard his catcher is thrown backwards; the turtle catcher uses a stovepipe to send the third strike back to Dan. A Giant batter hits the ball; the Hicksville pitcher loses it in a hailstorm of balls. The Giant batter, a weiner dog, manages to touch two bases at once, thus stretching his hit into a homer. Dan, showboating, lets two strikes go by, then when he hits, preens a while before running, but he still makes his run. Bottom of the ninth, 3-0, 2 outs, Hicksville pitcher Claude at bat. Arrogantly, Dan has walked three batters just to get to him, so bases are loaded. After missing a fast ball and a slow ball, Claude hits his grand-slam homer and keeps his girl, laughing in Dan's face. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Trivia

The first Merrie Melodies cartoon to use "Merrily We Roll Along" as its theme. This cartoon also debuts a blue Warner Bros. shield, which would be used until sometime in 1938. See more »

Goofs

In the setup for the cartoon's finale, the score is supposedly 3-0 Giants. But earlier, with the score at 2-0, Claude gave an in-the-park home run to a dachshund and a four-base error to Dizzy Dan, meaning the score should be 4-0, and Claude's grand slam should have tied the game, not given him the win. A similar, but less game-breaking, math error happened in Baseball Bugs (1946), another Friz Freleng production. See more »

Crazy Credits

The opening uses much thinner rings for the "bullseye" graphic and a very off-model Merrie Melodies logo. See more »

A Takeoff On Dizzy Dean
12 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It helps to know a little baseball history as this cartoon takes off on St. Louis Cardinals' ace of the day: Dizzy Dean. Here, it's a rooster named Dizzy Dan.

Dan is the star pitcher for the Giants who are in this whistle stop of a town called "Hickville" for an exhibition game. The town welcomes Dan with a band at the railroad station and Dan treats them with a long poem explaining how great he is!

The game features the normal stuff I've seen in other animated shorts, whether they feature "Goofy" or "Daffy" or "Bugs." Most of it's funny and revolves around the arrogant pitcher Dan and how he looks great until the bottom of the ninth when he gets a dish of humble pie.

Overall, a decent cartoon, nothing super, but the excellent artwork should be noted, too.
