Eggs Don't Bounce marks the first time Marge's Little Lulu was animated
31 August 2010 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this Little Lulu cartoon on YouTube as linked to a site devoted to the Paramount cartoons. Based on the one-panel strips created by Marge, this was the first time her character was animated. There are some funny sight gags like when Lulu's dog jumped up in the air to catch some eggs or when that same dog does a Chaplin imitation. There's also a fantastic nightmarish sequence worth of Max Fleischer (no wonder since the director I. Sparber and many of the animators previously worked for him) though it's marred a bit by the stereotyped caricature of the black maid who also appears in the present day sequences. The fact that Lulu also disguises herself as that maid to scare the chicken also wasn't funny to me. Still, Eggs Don't Bounce is worth a look if you're curious about these old-school cartoons.
