This Fleischer Screen Songs cartoon, The Stein Song, was the first to feature a star in Rudy Vallee
29 July 2011 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

Just watched this Max and Dave Fleischer Screen Songs cartoon on YouTube. According to the summary on it, this was the first one to feature a celebrity, in this case Rudy Vallee, singing the song. It may also be the first time a couple of animators were credited as opposed to just the director which, as always, would be Dave. One of those animators credited was Jimmie Culhane who'd later be better known as Shamus. Anyway, the cartoon centers on a college football game. One gag I especially liked was when a hot dog would just jump into the bun with the person holding it automatically spreading it with mustard with one of those dogs having a pillow especially on that bread prepared for him! Also as always, the "bouncing ball"-which began as the football-jumps on the lyrics of the title song before being replaced by the characters with the last ending gag being a bit bizarre. So on that note, The Stein Song is well worth a look for anyone interested in these vintage cartoons.
