Storyline

The auditorium of a movie theater is crowded with animals in human clothes, eagerly waiting for the film to start. The show opens with a newsreel called Warmer News. It presents the implementation of war to peace time use. With the help of radar the father of a family can detect the approach of his mother-in-law, and hide the entire house before she arrives. During the newsreel a wolf in the auditorium falls asleep, but when the feature starts, he quickly awakens. The feature presents the two stars Bogey Gocart and Laurie Bee Cool in "To Have-To Have-To Have-To Have-To Have-To Have-To Have-To Have". When Laurie in the film asks "Anybody have a light?", the wolf in the audience gets randy. And when she continues: "You only have to whistle", the wolf starts whistling loudly. Full of excitement he jumps on to the narrow stage in front of the movie. Bogey Gocart sees the wolf and shoots him through the screen. Written by Maths Jesperson {maths.jesperson1@comhem.se}

Decent Spoof Of 'To Have & Have Not'
15 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We are taken back to the movie theater in the '40s where people are playing musical chairs, wolves are making passes at beautiful usherettes, and the "warmer news" movie short is showing, explaining how "American industry cleverly adapts the implements of war to peace time use." We then see clever and funny ways radar is now being used in post-war 1946.

Then, the feature movie begins with "Bogey Gocart and Laurie Bee Cool in Too-Have, Too- Have, Too-Have and Too-Have." In between this animated take-off of the famous film, "To Have And Have Not," we see what's happening in the theater such as a Hippo barging his way in front of people and "Bogey" telling him, "Hey, Fat Boy. If you want to see how this picture ends, sit down!" We see the wolf going nuts whenever "Laurie" is on screen, etc.

Man, the humor was corny back then (but fun to watch in these old cartoons).
