Storyline

Sammy Seagull and Cecil Crow have stowed away on the same ship. Cecil, from Iowa, wants to see a hula dancer; fortunately, they've just come within flying distance of a tropical island with a lovely dancer. They take turns trying to impress her, with such stunts as skywriting hearts (Cecil almost drowns) and fancy dives (Cecil almost crashes, then gets into a fight with a shark, a turtle, and a starfish). Just when you think Cecil hasn't got a chance, a gorilla shows up wearing a shirt labeling him the villian (in case you didn't know); Cecil grabs a shirt labeling him the hero, fights off the villain, and gets the girl.

"Hiya babe. What's cookin' cutie?"
3 August 2016 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Middling bit of business about a slow-witted crow (voice by Pinto Colvig of Goofy fame) and a rough-around-the-edges seagull (voiced by Mel Blanc) that stow away on a ship together. When they come within flying distance of a tropical island with a hula dancing bird, they both try to impress her with their aerial prowess and other tricks. Not a bad cartoon but nothing special. This is one of the shorts Tex Avery had started work on before being leaving Schlesinger Studios over a disagreement with Leon Schlesinger over the ending to The Heckling Hare short. How much work Avery put into this I don't know (Bob Clampett finished it). It's far from the best work of either man that's for sure. Still, it's enjoyable for what it is.
