In the wacky museum, we see a bust of Bob Hope and a statue of the Sphinx, which has Harpo Marx's head. The artist who takes us on a tour of the wacky museum is a loose caricature of Jerry Colonna. He employs one of of Colonna's catchphrases: "Greetings, Gate!" See more »

Decent 1940s Fleischer
12 October 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

An artist with a smock, a beret and a voice like Jerry Colonna shows off the sculpture in a gallery. It's a series of blackout gags in which the audience sees the title, and then the sculpture is revealed .... and it's always a pun. This goes on for a bit too long in this decent but unremarkable late Fleischer cartoon.

The studio was losing its focus as brothers Max and Dave fought and the cartoons suffered. They were down to the Popeye series, hobbled by the Production Code and were looking for other series. Their efforts were not particularly successful and the studio was being floated on loans from Paramount. They would produce arguably the most beautiful color cartoons of all time -- the Superman cartoons -- for more money than had ever been spent on short cartoons -- and go broke. Certainly, this one wasn't much help in staving off the end.
