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.

Gallopin' Gals is an interesting early Hanna-Barbera cartoon short sans Tom and Jerry
13 August 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This is one of those rare MGM/Hanna-Barbera cartoon shorts that doesn't involve Tom and Jerry. In Gallopin' Gals, all the racehorses are female who dress in the fashions of the day gossiping about some of the other female racehorses behind their back. One female horse who's all alone is named Maggie who's shy and has hay fever. She has yet to win a race. Many witty lines about makeup and men horses abound as an announcer introduces many of them during this six-minute animated short. If you're familiar with many of these vintage cartoons from the '40s, you'll probably guess what happens here when the race is over. So on that note, I'll just say Gallopin' Gals is worth a look for animation fans of William Hanna and Joseph Barbera.
