The Golden State is another amusing Famous Studios Screen Song cartoon
17 May 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

I went to the Matinée at the Bijou blog and found this rare Famous Studios cartoon short that had a "follow-the-bouncing-ball" line attached to it since this is a Screen Song short that features the song, "California, Here I Come". Among the gags are the Big Chief train that briefly turns into a head of an Indian Chief, skeletons meant to represent "Spike Jones and Boys" dancing in Death Valley, horns playing when we get to Cape Horn (to show how some South Americans also came to California), and Harpo Marx's footprints at the Grauman's Chinese Theatre chasing a woman! Pretty amusing and worth a look for anyone who loves vintage animation. Oh, and in this one, "citrus" replaces "ball".
