" Giddy Up Horsey! "
31 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

Everything said about "SKIPALONG ROSENBLOOM" is so true. As a kid seeing it for the first time back in the '50's (remember we were cutting our teeth on barbed-wire cowboy movies, Wild West cerealized TV shows, adventure comic books & MADdening humor magazines, fer chrissake)... Well, this amalgam of the aforementioned all rolled up and neatly placed in this ridiculous film was like finding a pot o friggin' comedy/uncontrollable laughing gold at the end of the rainbow. It represented the "best of silliness" for the times of a pre- teen that was living in such a serious world of atomic war talk and communism mumbo jumbo.
