This is an excellent Chilly Willy cartoon as the silent little penguin discovers that Wally Walrus is running a fish market. Jack Hannah, the latest in a long line of Disney refugees, directs Chilly with a series of Chaplinesque movements and gestures and steals one of Larry Semon's best gags along the way. Hannah also bends cartoon reality in a manner new to me: as Willy steals more and more fish, using cartoon cutouts, we see Wally's fantasy of immense wealth parading as he shouts orders for 'more vish!' in the form of live-action sequences of fishing! Hannah also manages some nice movement given the minimalistic detailing and in-betweening that Lantz' budgets permitted in this period.
