The Man on the Flying Trapeze
7 October 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Famous Studios offers the sixth of the revived series of Screen Songs, abandoned by the Fleischers at the end of the 1930s. It features "The Man on the Flying Trapeze.

It's an excellent effort for the series. The jokes come thick and fast and there are even some hints of raciness, long absent from the cartoons, as the ewes show a bit of cleavage beneath their sweaters and, when they rise to stare at the song's title character -- actually a wolf -- the observant viewer can see some underwear; I imagine that director Izzy Sparber raised his eyebrows when the censor complained. "Really? You're looking at sheep?" Although the revived series never reached the heights of chaotic merriment it achieved in the early 1930s, this is a fine cartoon for young and old.
