Storyline

The brochures in a travel agency come to life. After a series of quick gags (flying fish in airplanes, a wave washing swimmers out to sea and back, etc). , there's a musical interlude featuring a tuba from Cuba. Two Hungary boys are lured by the Cook Island; they grab the Twin Forks from Montana, and add Turkey to their plates, then stop by the Sandwich Islands, Hamburg, Chili, Oyster Bay, and finally a cup of Java. A thief from Bagdad visits the Kimberly Diamond Mines, but awakes a sleeping baby, who Wales. This alerts Central (America), who calls Radio City, which contacts all countries. A group of bobbies, Mounties, Scotland Yard, and others pursue, while the thief is visiting a Pawnee shop. He tries to hide in the fog of London, but it's blown away by a windmill. A dude ranch hand ropes him, then drags him through the Red, Black, and Yellow Seas, and onto the back of the Lone Stranger's horse. They ride off, noting that he's not alone any more. (There is reportedly another ... Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Geography was always my worst subject at school so perhaps I'm just bitter!
9 January 2009 | by (Lincoln, England) – See all my reviews

Frank Tashlin's 'You're an Education' is another of the many inanimate-objects-come-to-life cartoons, the final of three directed by Tashlin in 1938. In this case, the publications suddenly becoming animated are brochures in a travel agents, leading to a long stretch of country-specific musical cues. In the tradition of the format, a villain emerges towards the end, in this case the Thief of Baghdad. 'You're an Education' is by far the worst of Tashlin's 1938 trilogy, lacking decent gags or any opportunity to really build up much energy. It's not as attractive as the so-so 'Speaking of the Weather' and it falls a long, long way short of the great 'Have You Got Any Castles' (which 'You're an Education' actually references in the opening minute). This sub-genre of cartoons often depended on the potential of the inanimate objects that formed its central concept and, frankly, travel brochures is a dull starting point. I have a soft spot for these type of cartoons since they can be spectacular when done well (the aforementioned 'Have You Got Any Castles' and the pinnacle of the genre, Bob Clampett's masterful 'Book Revue') but 'You're an Education' is probably my least favourite of the lot.
