Storyline

Time for the big horse race. We drop in on the fillies, who gossip in New York accents. That's followed by a pre-race fashion parade. In both of these, Maggie doesn't join in; she runs every year, but suffers from hay fever. The actual race is run, and Maggie is far back in the field. The other horses hear it's going to be a photo finish, though, and they all come to an abrupt stop and pose except Maggie, who keeps running and wins the race.

Predictable
18 February 2012 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Gallopin' Gals takes all the tired, predictable jokes with the premise 'fillies are just like teenage girls' you can think of and wraps them into a 7-minute cartoon taking place on a race track. (Case in point: "I suppose he still gives her that old line about a woman's place is in the stable.") The horses talk about their guy problems, they gossip about other fillies, and they are worried that they will not look good when photographed.

I will admit that the coloration is appealing to the eye, there are a few vaguely amusing lines (- "But they say she's good on a muddy track." – "Why not? She's been slinging it for years."), and the excited narrator does a fine job during the final race, but overall, Gallopin' Gals is quite dire, and far from the best 40s cartoons I have seen.
