Flip the Frog is on the road in his tiny automobile. He's on his way to serenade his feline sweetie. On the way, a rich, cigar-chomping cat in his expensive car, honks at Flip, wanting to pass him. Flip's response is to press a lever on his car and extend its wheels in order to block every inch of the road. The cars themselves get in on the act: the bigger car bites the smaller one on his trunk. The smaller one gets even by lifting a wheel, like a dog lifting its leg, and spraying soot on the big car and its wealthy driver. Meanwhile, the girl-cat is admiring herself in the mirror as she gets ready for the night. As she removes her clothes, the picture of Flip on her dressing table gets embarrassed. But the animate portrait can't resist sneaking a peak. Finally, Flip himself arrives. He removes his tiny car like a tight piece of clothing and shakes it upside down.

Music Is The Main Attraction
8 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There really isn't that much humor to this Flip The Frog story, but it has a lot of charm and good "ragtime" music.

I liked the various horns on Flip's car; Flip's "picture" on his girlfriends bedroom drawer coming alive and getting a kick out of seeing his girl undress and Flip getting all the musical instruments out of his car. After that the cartoon is mostly musical as Flip serenades his girl, and then she comes down and the two of them entertain the whole building.....except for one old lady who wants to get her sleep!

Overall, not bad. It's actually better on the second viewing, especially the music which will get you in a good mood. It's old "ragtime" music. It will have you tapping your feet!
