Molly Moo-Cow is enjoying a walk among the woodland flora and fauna. When a hunter arrives, Molly helps arm the other animals to run off the intruder.
After reading negative comments about other Molly Moo-Cow cartoons, I was pleasantly surprised by this one. The artwork is beautiful, like so many other prewar cartoons, and Molly's movements and behavior are actually pretty funny. Her gentle interaction with the ducks is well presented, as is her silly playfulness when they go swimming together.
I think there were six Molly Moo-Cow cartoons in all... "Picnic Panic", "Hunters Are Coming", "Molly Moo-Cow and the Indians", "Molly Moo-Cow and the Butterflies", "Molly Moo-Cow and Rip Van Wrinkle", and "Molly Moo-Cow and Robinson Crusoe", in that order.
Perhaps this is Molly Moo-Cow at her best? Another 'Molly' movie, "Molly Moo-Cow and Rip Van Winkle", is just as beautifully drawn, but Molly doesn't come across as the same likable character, and in "Molly Moo-Cow and Robinson Crusoe" she behaves more like a dog than a cow. Of the six Molly cartoons, I think this is the best, so if you like 1930s color cartoons, "Hunters Are Coming" is worth a look.
