Storyline

Little Audrey, forced to stay indoors because of the rain, wishes that it would never rain again. Her wish comes true and the Mississippy River dries up and Niagara Falls disappears. Speakeasies come back, where men with money can get an eyedropper of water, while the flowers, trees and grass die for lack of water. Little Audrey is sorry and a little drop of rainwater takes her to the rainmaker to see if she can make him relent. Little Audrey's sad story makes him cry, and his tears spill over the clouds as rainwater. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Rain, Rain, Go Away
16 November 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This is one of a series of big fantasy cartoons starring Little Audrey. Like THE LOST DREAM and THE SEAPREME COURT, it is couched as a dream fantasy. Audrey is stuck inside while it rains and wishes that it would never rain again. In her dream, it does and she has to go to see the Rain Maker to fix the problem.

It's well done and the gags are well constructed, as one would expect from Famous Studios in this period. However, I find these Big Fantasy Little Audreys a bit creepy and this one in particular. I don't doubt it was deliberate and in some ways I find it appropriate. while in other ways. it repulses me. Credit Jackson Beck in a very fine voice role as the jovial but uncaring Rain Maker.
