Another insipid 30s cartoon...
18 June 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I agree with Lee Eisenberg's review. The Warner cartoons before about 1941 were, all in all, not especially good or inspired. When they finally discovered zaniness and great characters, they made the best cartoon shorts...period. But, as this is from 1936, it's in the dull old days for Looney Tunes. The artwork is good compared to most other studios and it is in color. But, it's also a bit creepy--especially the jack-in-the-box. There's also A LOT of singing--such that I assume kids would have been bored to death by this. It's really hard to believe that the same decade that brought us the great Hal Roach comedy shorts also brought a lot of horrid cartoons. Aside from Disney, they just don't hold up well to cartoons made just a decade later. Give me a Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny or Tom & Jerry any time. However, despite disliking it a lot, I must give it a 4 because compared to non-Disney cartoons, it's actually better than average! Yikes!
