Storyline

A group of celebrity dogs, led by an 'Edward G. Robinson' look-alike and including 'Jimmy Durante', decide that celebrity dogs need a nightclub of their own. What follows is very similar to Hollywood Steps Out (1941), except that all the celebrities are drawn as dogs. Notable gags: Dogwood & Blondie making a sandwich of bones; Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy washing dishes, with Stan putting the washed dishes back into the sink; Bud Abbott and 'Lou Costello' as dogs; a sheepdog with hair in his eyes who suddenly has perfect vision when a pretty girl walks by. In an extended scene, Leopold Bowowsky conducts an orchestra; after a series of spot gags, a tuba player misses his cue because he was getting a cup of water, then blows the wrong note because of a fly on his score. Bing Crosby, who was earlier greeting patrons, loses a girl to Frank Sinatra, who was hiding behind a pencil-thin tree. Kaynine Kyser leads his band; we see quick solos from several jazz players, like "Hairy" James and "... Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

one scene inadvertently predicts a future part of popular culture
3 November 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Yes, it's another celebrities-caricatured-as-animals cartoon. Robert McKimson's "Hollywood Canine Canteen" has pretty much the same plot as Tex Avery's "Hollywood Steps Out" from a few years earlier, only this time portraying dogs belonging to famous people (often with names altered to sound canine). As is often the case, they depict Frank Sinatra - or his caricature - as emaciated.

However, there is one scene that, in my opinion, represents a future part of popular culture. The female dog running the cloak room looks almost exactly like Connie Hines, who played Carol on "Mister Ed". And let me tell you, SHE IS ONE OF THE HOTTEST WOMEN EVER TO GRACE THE TV SCREEN!!!!!! Every time that I get a chance to watch "Mister Ed", I only watch it to see Connie Hines (who cares about a talking horse?). Although Ms. Hines retired from acting many years ago, I still consider her one of the most attractive/beautiful/good-looking/gorgeous women of all time. And this cartoon contains a character who resembles her almost to a tee, probably not knowing that they were creating a character who looks like her.

OK, I'm sure that my assertion has nothing to do with the cartoon in general. The cartoon is worth seeing. Not one of their greatest, but certainly OK in a pinch. One of McKimson's more significant cartoons in 1946 was "Walky Talky Hawky", which debuted Foghorn Leghorn.

In conclusion: I LOVE YOU, CONNIE, AND I ALWAYS WILL! XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO
