Popular Music: A Common Additive In Vintage Cartoons
If you think some Merrie Melodies short featuring a Mickey-looking dog was the first cartoon to used the song One More Time, think again. But before we go there, let's look what we find first.
In this cartoon, we see Oswald running a radio station. The three singers at the beginning are shown singing And If You See Our Darling Nellie. After they do so well, the next one to take center stage is some prickly back creature who didn't perform his cello very well, and is therefore kicked out. Finally, Oswald then turns to a band which performs One More Time. I had no idea that song was used in this film. Anyway, using popular songs at the time was a common way to spice up cartoons. As for the gags and entertaining stuff here, it's adequate.
