What is This Thing Called Love?

Sour Puss wants to get some sleep. Gandy Goose turns the radio on low
and drifts off to a radio show telling the tale of the Princess and the
Frog in this average Terrytoon.
This is an underwritten episode in the usually excellent series of
cartoons starring Gandy and Sourpuss. Several of them had the two
drifting off to sleep. Sometimes they had adventures together and
sometimes singly. In this one it's Gandy who does the adventuring, but
it's an underwritten one, with not much in the way of gags.
The visuals are up to standard, though. This period offered the most
elaborately realized offerings from Paul Terry's studio, and they
tended towards the Candybox style of background work. Following the
War, budgets would shrink quickly, if not in nominal dollars; inflation
would take the budgets, and the box office would peak in 1946.
But not yet. Enjoy the pretty pictures.
