In the Shade of the Old Apple Tree was another one of the Fleischer Screen Song cartoons
28 July 2011 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This was a Screen Song cartoon by Max and Dave Fleischer. There's plenty of weird imagery from hands on a clock pulling the work whistle above it to that whistle spitting to a sandwich biting the worker to...well, it's just plenty of gags that one would expect from these early animated cartoons made during this early talkie era. This was one of those "follow the bouncing ball" shorts only this time it's an apple as it jumps over the lyrics of an old-fashioned song that is so corny I doubt it would go over today. As in many of these cartoons, near the end of the song, characters would replace the apple over the remaining lyrics, then there's one more scene to end on a humorous note. That's all there is to it. So on that note, In the Shade of the Old Apple Tree is worth a look.
