Combination Of Things
10 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know how many of these combination travelogue/sing-a-long/cartoon shorts were made Paramount's "Famous Studios" but they sure look different from most animated short subjects we are used to seeing. They combine information, audience singing participating and cartoon-like jokes all at the same time. This one hits close to home for them: California.

I actually learned a little history about California that I didn't know and it was presented in an entertaining way. Being that it's all about the state, Hollywood is cited and we get some plugs for Dorothy Lamour, Alan Ladd and Grauman's Chinese Theater.

It ends with the "follow-the-bouncing-citrus" sing-a-long to "California, Here I Come." I wonder if audiences actually sang out loud in the theater? Corny, yeah, but nostalgic and not bad for a one-time viewing.
