Jitterbug Follies, 26 December 2013
Author: Magenta_Bob from Sweden

When Count Screwloose and J.R. the Wonder Dog are suspected of setting up a talent show only to take off with the money, a sadistically looking vigilante forces them to carry it out, but the real act of sadism here is to force the viewers to sit through the atonal eight-minute talent(less) show in what can best be described as the Trout Mask Replica of cartoons.

It's not entirely without merits – for one thing the characters are drawn decently amusingly – but overall it's pretty low on laughs and not remotely as funny as the Marx brothers movies it comes with as a bonus.
