Very good example of its ilk, tossed in as an extra on my Myrna Loy and William Powell DVD!
17 August 2016 | by (Windsor, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

This was a great cartoon extra on my 'I Love You Again' DVD that was Disc 4 of my 5-film 'TCM Spotlight: Myrna Loy and William Powell Collection'. In it, four harmonica-playing birds play so intensely that they end up destroying a general store, despite the owner trying his best at damage control. A Yankee-hating rebel from the South, still carrying a grudge, keeps trying with his flute to play 'Dixie' but is subsequently either ignored or suppressed by the rest of the troupe. One of the best of this sort of thing (and I love this era of classic animation), not concentrating on a proved character, that I have seen in a long while.
