Hat's all, folks
26 March 2010 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Tex Avery wasn't usually one to portray "cuteness". "A Sunbonnet Blue" was the closest that he came to it. The cartoon depicts a hat store where a bunch of mice spend the night partying. A boy mouse and girl mouse are trying to get romantic, but a goon mouse steals her, and the boy mouse gets the rest of his brethren to help him rescue her.

The main clues that this is Tex Avery are the occasional spot gags relating to the hats. There's also some topical humor (the Rats brothers, which is a parody of the Ritz brothers). I noticed that they include the song "I Haven't Got a Hat", which was most famously used in Porky Pig's debut.

So, it's an OK cartoon. Nothing that I would highly recommend, but not bad.

PS: This was the final Merrie Melodie that used stock music during the end title. After this, they always used "Merrily We Roll Along".
