The Bluebird of Happiness
10 December 2010 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This Columbia Color Rhapsody cartoon is basically a study in Technicolor as a young boy shoots a bluebird and repents of shooting birds. The colors are studies in Technicolor with pastel blues and pinks and all the characters -- the birds, the boy and his dog -- are shaped in extreme juvenile roundness for the sake of cuteness and there is a plea never to hurt birds at the end that make me think I want a nice chicken dinner.

In short, this cartoon is aimed squarely at the kiddies and while there are technical issues that make it of some interest to people who want to find such things, there is nothing of interest to an adult viewer in terms of story. With the closing down of the Mintz unit, it would be another couple of years before Columbia's cartoon unit would be shaken up by Frank Tashlin's short term as a producer.
