Storyline

A parade of various animals leads piano-playing Krazy and his likewise opponent, a Lion, to a large, crowded arena where they square off in the boxing ring to play a musical duel. The Lion has an upright piano, and plays a bit though a fly keeps bothering him. Krazy has a grand piano, and plays a little too, but soon it's between rounds, and all four competitors (the pianos are living creatures also) are exhausted. Then the pianos go at it alone in a punch out, Krazy and the victorious Grand start a spirited playing of "St. Louis Blues", and the Lion and Upright join in as well. All take a bow at the end.

Another Mintz Musical Performance
8 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

Once again the anthropomorphic takes center stage. It has been said that the animators had not yet been able to sync the words with the mouths of the cartoon characters. So instead, they roughly attach recorded music with visual images. This whole offering involves a battle between two pianists. One is a lion. The other is Krazy Kat. There is the usual use of instruments on characters. Heads as xylophones, for instance. The most clever of all the bits involves the performance within a boxing ring. After the bell, they rest up like boxers. The pianists get a rest, but so do the pianos. One piano does the water drinking bit where the water is expelled outside the ring. They also huff and puff like boxers do. The rest is more of he same stuff I've already seen in numerous Mintz cartoons.
