It Helps To Know Who These Celebs Are
11 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Dine And Dance With The Stars" is the in-house advertisement on this cartoon, which takes place in the famous nightclub, The Cocoanut Grove, which has its name altered in the title here.

You would have to have grown up in the '20s and '30s to know all the personalities that are being spoofed in here, beginning with the band leader, but it was still fun trying to pick out all the people I knew from classic films.

Those I did recognize through sight or audio were columnist Walter Winchell, W.C. Fields, Katharine Hepburn (called "Miss Heartburn" here), Johnny Weissmueller and Maureen O'Sullivan, Hedda Hopper (who turns out to be Groucho Marx), Harpo Marx, Mae West (dancing with a turtle), Oliver and Hardy, Greta Garbo, Clark Gable (flapping his Dumbo-like ears), Edward G. Robinson and George Raft and others I couldn't quite get.

Two of the people featured, the emcee and band leader, and the female crooner I did know. Nonetheless, celebrity-gazing aside, the colors in here were astounding and restoration job outstanding. This looked very good for a cartoon so old. The humor wasn't much. I'm sure this would have been a lot funnier to the folks watching back in the mid '30s because they could relate to all those people.

This was part of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 3 DVD.
