Storyline

In the world of this cartoon, cars act like humans. Junior wants to grow up to be a taxi, but mom wants him to be a nice, respectable touring car (taxi dancers are literally taxis). What mom doesn't know is that junior has been sneaking into town to play in traffic, drink hi-test gas, and race trains. He runs out of gas at a particularly bad time and gets towed to the garage. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

One of the Merrie Melodies cartoons named after a featured song casts cars in the role of people, including a young car who decides not to do what his mom said. The 1930s Merrie Melodies didn't have totally consistent quality, although most of them were worth seeing. The best ones featured Daffy up to his usual silliness, although he and Porky mostly appeared in Looney Tunes while the Merrie Melodies were mainly one-shot cartoons. "Streamlined Greta Green" is nothing special. I noticed that the canisters said Rose Gas, Violet Gas and Ethyl Gas, so I assume that it was a pop culture reference that we in the 21st century unfortunately won't get.

OK, but like I said, nothing special.
