A Rainy Day
18 April 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Oswald is out on the street in a good mood, but a rainstorm drives him into a Five & Dime store, where he finds songs, jokes and a bride.

This is a fine Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. Except for the musical number "I Found a Million Dollar Baby in a Five and ten Cent Store", it is a silent cartoon, performed with good gags and timing -- almost plot less, but sustained by the gags.

This was a genre of cartoon from this period, as movie studios tried 'brand extension' by producing cartoons based on their song catalogues. Schlesinger's Merrie Melodies were contractually obligated to do this; the Fleischers produced their classic DID YOU EVER SEE A DREAM WALKING based on the big number from SITTING PRETTY.
