Great Short!!!, 27 April 2004
Author: Ggould1975

This one has the agng trying to sell lemonade while Froggy is one of the customres it turns out he has no money and says it's too hot in here! I wish they would put these great shorts back on TV!!! These are really good shorts and it's a shame that they are very hard to find these days!! Please put these back on TV!!! :) It's a shame that quite a few people think these shorts are terrible but some of the hal roach sshorts were not great as well. These shorts should be available like the rest of the Hal Roach era!!! Bring the MGM Shorts back on TV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or back on vide/DVD :) These are wonderful shorts and it's a shame!
