Polly wanna cracker
15 March 2005 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

Can someone explain to my why Polly is a common name for a parrot? And why do they have a fascination for crackers? I've never seen a real life parrot each a cracker.

In this cartoon a moving van goes over a nasty bump and a birdcage falls out. The newly freed parrot inside immediately flies into Mickey's house where Mickey mistakes his noisy presence as an invasion by escaped convict Machine-gun Charlie (or something). This is the set-up for the usual hijinks seen in Disney cartoons in which everything Mickey, Donald or Goofy owns is trashed because of their own clumsiness.

Something different it ain't.
