No Joy in Mudville
3 October 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Originally part of the movie Make Mine Music, this cartoon was released later on its own as a theatrical short. This was probably the most popular cartoon to come out of that film. I used to watch it a lot as a kid as part of a compilation video they put out at the time. It's a very funny recitation of Ernest Thayer's famous poem about an over-confident baseball player. Jerry Colonna handles the narration and does a terrific job. The animation is very nice. Love the colors. The music is very good, too. This is about as good as it gets for baseball cartoons. Well, this and the Bugs Bunny cartoon "Baseball Bugs." Definitely something you'll want to see if you like baseball or classic animation.
