Storyline

At the hobo hotel, it's morning. One hobo awakens, and carefully avoids the shower, except for a drop on each eye. He stops at the medicine cabinet for some "soda fizz" which jets about, causing havoc. A train goes by, and the swinging rhythm inspires a makeshift clarinet solo. The cook grabs some fish from the fridge, which opens right onto the river. Another train whistle prompts an announcer; the hobos board down a slide. The clarinet player starts up again, and everyone dances. The engineer notices, stops the train, and pulls the "hobo eliminator" lever, which ejects them. Fortunately, they land right in front of a sign looking for amateur musicians at a radio station. They play and sing, to everyone's enjoyment. The station owner offers them luxury but a passing train whistle changes their minds. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Entertaining, enjoyable one-shot cartoon

This short is a one-shot, that is to say that the characters and situation were not continuing as part of a series, but principally just the one cartoon. It's a thoroughly engaging and entertaining short with excellent use of music (more or less automatic for Warner Brothers animation for most of their existence) as is appropriate, given the title. Pinto Colvig is best known to most people as the voice of Goofy, but did a fair amount of voice work elsewhere. Well worth seeking out. Most recommended
