I'm Afraid to Come Home in the Dark was another of these entertainingly surreal Max Fleischer Screen Song cartoons
Just watched this early Max Fleischer Screen Song talkie cartoon on YouTube. This one has a humanized dog coming from a bar and fighting with his shadow in the dark just before that famous bouncing ball comes on and has the singer warbling the title song. Lots of highly amusing scare gags that seemed par for the course of these Dave Fleischer-"directed" cartoons. I put the "D"-word in quotes since Dave was the only credited person of such position on every cartoon his brother Max was associated with until their split in the early '40s. Still, the gag structure seemed to be mainly the influence of Dave's love of whatever sight jokes he could think of whether they really fit in or not. So on that note, I'm Afraid to Come Home in the Dark is well worth seeing for anyone curious about these early Fleischer sound cartoons.
