Storyline

The citizens of Birdville are going about their business: weaving baskets, patronizing the bank (depositing nuts and worms), etc. In the saloon, a gangster type sings the title song, mugs a passing cop, and drinks a row of shots. He looks out and spots the bank; leading his gang across the street, he acts as lookout while the gang robs the bank. The police pursue; shootout. In the hideout, the ganster laughs at his wanted poster. A beat cop spots the getaway car and summons help; shootout, including air support. The cops shoot out the floor of the hideout birdhouse, capturing the lead, who sings, from jail, the flip side of the title song, "I'm just a jailbird now." Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

I'M A BIG SHOT NOW (Friz Freleng, 1936) **1/2
14 April 2008 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

An early, and therefore minor, Looney Tunes cartoon which plays as a spoof on the pacy crime melodramas (pioneered by the same studio, Warner Bros.) then in their heyday. This, too, can be found among the extras on the BULLETS OR BALLOTS (1936) DVD. Basically, it shows the rise and fall of a small-time hood in just 7 minutes – with the anti-hero himself changing lines from his signature tune (the title number) to accommodate his current demeanor. The Looney Tunes are among the most inventive and zany cartoons ever made, but this was still some years ahead of their golden era (in fact, none of the famous characters had been created by this point).
