Storyline

The rain is outdoors; the action is indoors, in a grocery store, where the characters on product labels come to life (along with one real worm). While much of the picture features characters in blackface, and hence is usually censored, the remaining part includes a bottle of blueing singing "Am I Blue", a snake charmer from a coffee can playing for a tube of toothpaste, an elegant dancing couple from cigarette packs, the umbrella girl on a salt box under a waterfall, and some baby chicks from cleanser cans chasing the aforementioned worm. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

TERRIFIC Freleng 30s musical.....c'mon, WHV, put this one in your next Golden Collection!!!
10 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ah, I'll probably kick the bucket before they put this one on DVD......mainly because it's been cut to shreds in TV prints. This isn't an OFFENSIVE cartoon--merely a celebration of America's pop-and-jazz heritage. The two prize-winning musical numbers here are the ones censored: Al Jolson as the Cream-o'-Wheat chef, singing the title song to his "mammy,"Aunt Jemima. Then, there's the climactic "Nagasaki" number, with Louis Armstrong & Fats Waller as the Gold Dust Twins; with the Sunshine Baker & the Arm-&-Hammer guy on percussion. (This bit was reused in Clampett's "Tin Pan Alley Cats.") Hey, Warner Home Video: put THIS one in your next "Golden Collection!"
