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.

Bugs Bunny meets Goofy
13 December 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Although "Aloha Hooey" doesn't carry a directorial credit, the director is Tex Avery, who had left Leon Schlesinger Productions following an argument with the producer. The plot has unctuous but cool Sammy Seagull and witless, clumsy Cecil Crow stowing away together and then vying for the affection of a hula dancing bird.

If Cecil's voice sound's familiar, it's because his voice artist is Pinto Colvig, better known as Goofy in the Disney cartoons; apparently, he only provided the voices of brain-dead characters (others in Warner Bros. cartoons include the title character in Chuck Jones's "Conrad the Sailor" and the canine in Friz Freleng's "Ding Dog Daddy"). Sammy, meanwhile, sounds like Bugs Bunny, as Mel Blanc provides his voice.

Anyway, bad things happen to Cecil until his moment of truth arrives. This cartoon seems mostly like a placeholder in between the really great cartoons, but it's still worth seeing.
