Depression time capsule
9 July 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

In one of the many Looney Tunes cartoons not featuring the usual set of characters, a Depression-era female mouse has to sell apples in the miserable cold, and then bring them home to her abusive husband. But when he abandons her and takes up with another woman, she does what any woman has the right to do.

Aside from the main plot, I see "He Was Her Man" as a Depression time capsule. Aside from the despair prevalent during that time, the female mouse sells apples for five cents. To think that five cents used to be worth something! But anyway, I recommend this cartoon as a look back at an era that unfortunately could return given the current state of the world.
