Storyline

An evening at a night club for penguins, (and a walrus or two). The stage show includes an appearance by a penguin incarnation of Bing Crosby, who sings a jazzy version of, "When my dreamboat comes home". The band's three singers do a scat version as well. This is followed by a full swing band instrumental of the song which works the band into a "Hot Jazz" frenzy, literaly melting some of the instruments. Written by Bob Forrester <bobforrest@aol.com>

Any penguin fans will find The Penguin Parade a treasure!
27 November 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I certainly am a penguin fan, as well as one of Tex Avery, and I did find The Penguin Parade a treasure. One of my personal favourites from Avery, that's for sure. Okay maybe Avery has better cartoons technically, but the visuals are still quite attractive and charming. I adore the soundtrack, Carl Stalling's scoring has his trademark orchestral liveliness and infectious energy, and the musical numbers are really catchy. The humour is very manic especially with the scats, and is delivered in a very fresh and witty way. A definite standout was the closing line, which is just priceless. The caricatures are right on point as well with nothing coming across as questionable. The penguins are both endearing and very funny. Both Avery's and Mel Blanc's vocal characterisations are brilliant, they've never put a foot wrong as far as I'm concerned.

In conclusion, a treasure for anybody who loves animation, penguins or both. 10/10 Bethany Cox
