Storyline

A partial updating of the Cinderella story. When the fairy godmother is late, Cinderella calls the police, who put out an APB and find her in a bar. Her first attempt at turning the pumpkin (canned) and mice into a coach produces Santa. Cinderella gets to the ball (in a stagecoach) and meets Prince Charming Egghead. They dance, and spend some quality time on the balcony. Midnight, dropped slipper, and all that; Egghead finds her house with the help of some neon signs, but all that's there is a note that she got tired of waiting and went to a Warner Bros. show. She pops up from the audience, and they head off to the tenth row together. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Very uneven--ranging from hilarious to dopey.
8 January 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Cinderella Meets Fella" is a variation on the old Cinderella story. It's filled with anachronisms and silliness.

While "Cinderella Meets Fella" is no great cartoon, compared to the usual film they made at the time, it's pretty good--but also wildly uneven. Part of the reason some of it is good is the bizarre sense of humor of the film's director, Tex Avery. Now this was long before his great films with MGM--and only a few years later, Looney Tunes (Warner Brothers) would fire him. But here, he clearly gives the cartoon a sense of weirdness that helps. However, for every weird moment, a dopey one follows--with VERY corny humor that will make you groan. Worth seeing if you want to see early Avery, otherwise it's one you might want to pass on and just see a later film from this wonderful studio.
