Storyline

Cinderella, with some modern touches: The Brooklyn-accented Cinderella is on the phone to her girlfriend Sadie telling her about the ball. The fairy godmother looks like 'Mae West'; the dancers at the ball jitterbug; the prince looks and acts like Harpo Marx. At the end, when the prince drops by with the slipper, the fairy godmother reappears to claim both the slipper and the prince. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

A Superior Terry Toon
9 January 2009 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This better than usual Paul Terry cartoon is directed by Mannie Davis, brother of Termite Terrace's Art Davis and the best director that Terry managed to hang onto for a long time. It is, as you might guess from the title, a version of Cinderella. Besides the usual competently timed gags, it is rendered superior for the studio by better than usual sound design and voice choices: Cinderella sounds like a girl from the Bronx who needs to have her adenoids operated on, her fairy godmother looks like Mae West and as for whom Prince Charming is modeled on..... well, it's a fine, silly choice.

Davis' efforts are rendered superior by the fact that he throws out the gag, refusing to dwell on it. The lends a casual wackiness to his cartoons that other Terry directors like Rasinski rarely achieved.
