Tom and three of his friends play harmonicas continuously, and vigorously so vigorously that they wreck the local general store. And despite the attempts of one bird to keep playing "Dixie" on the flute, no matter what else is being played. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

A most frenetic, energetic and unusual cartoon!
13 August 2003 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is an extremely odd cartoon to describe. The premise is that a harmonica playing quartet essentially destroys a general store by virtue of rather energetic playing of their instruments. The sight of the poor shopkeeper as he watches his livelihood disintegrate (despite his best efforts at damage control) before his very eyes is both comic and a bit sad at the same time. The running gag features a rather wizened old bird in Confederate gray popping up and trying to choose the next song on the program by force of his own fife-playing. He's clearly single-minded and carries a grudge a long time (no doubt against Yankees). Hilarious, particularly the running gag. Well worth tracking down. Recommended.
