Oh, You Beautiful Doll was another entertaining Max Fleischer Screen Song cartoon
30 November 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this Max Fleischer Screen Song cartoon on YouTube. In this one, a cat is cleaning a store carpet when he gets interrupted by a mouse. After they do a brief tap dance, a lady cat comes in which has the male cat already smitten. As he tries to woo her, the mouse keeps bothering him to the point of the female feline customer leaving. Then, as the cat tries to get the mouse out of the swinging chandelier, an unseen voice tells us to follow the Bouncing Ball to sing the title song. It's only during the Bouncing Ball part that you don't hear someone singing the lyrics-other than some "Oh's"-as we later hear a singer warble as the words are now on the bottom of the screen as the cat is playing the flute and the mouse is once again annoying him. The mouse then jumps on the last words as the cat is now chasing him. Then in the last sequence, several mice are eating a large hunk of Swiss cheese and then when they get to the bottom of it, their tails are caught in a mousetrap! Only one mouse escapes-probably the same one throughout the cartoon-and as he reattaches his tail, leaves his fellow rodents to suffer! The end. Wow, this was quite funny with the mouse and cat fight but what a comically dark ending that was! So on that note, I recommend Oh, You Beautiful Doll. P.S. Twenty years later, Fleischer successor Famous Studios made Toys Will Be Toys which also featured "Oh, You Beautiful Doll" as the showcase song.
