Tom Turkey and His Harmonica Humdingers was a very entertaining Hugh Harmon cartoon for M-G-M
28 November 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this M-G-M Hugh Harmon cartoon on Uncle John's Crazy Town site. In this one, the title character sings and plays the harmonica with some friends at the local general store. In between are some gags about the store getting some "shaking up" (if you know what I mean) as the quartet play their numbers. That sequence with the store shelf falling down was quite exciting. I also loved seeing Tom-voiced by Mel Blanc-rolling some words when introducing another number. And the harmonica playing provided by Borrah Minevitch and His Harmonica Rascals is entertaining from beginning to end. I wasn't too crazy about the end sequence but despite that, I highly recommend Tom Turkey and His Harmonica Humdingers.
